New Student Orientation 2022

New Student Orientation 2022

Thursday, August 25 to Sunday, August 28

Incoming students will move-in on campus on Thursday, August 25. New Student Orientation will run from Thursday, August 25 to Sunday, August 28.

Move-in is the first official event of Orientation, and there will be move-in crews to help you. Residence halls open at 8:00 AM, so we'll see you there bright and early! Commuter students should plan to arrive around 11:00 AM for check in at Perry Hall.

Be sure to check back later this summer for more details and updates, including a full schedule.


Here's a sneak peak at some (but not all!) of the weekend's highlights:

  • Lake Champlain boat cruise
  • Lunch with faculty and Deans
  • Fun in the IDX Student Life Center, featuring the Grind Coffeehouse (live music!)
  • Games on the green
  • Movie under the stars
  • And so much more!
