New Student Experience

 

 

Incoming Freshmen (Spring)

Welcome to Salisbury! Your comprehensive New Student Experience consists of the following programs and opportunities:

Orientation 101

Orientation 101 is a one-day event in
January. Attendance is required for incoming freshmen. At Orientation 101, you will receive an overview of University life and register for your Spring classes with the help of faculty and staff advisors. Parents and family members are welcome to attend (students and parents follow different schedules). Students will receive information about Orientation 101, along with instructions to register, from the Office of Admissions.

The cost of the Orientation 101 program is covered by your orientation fee and is non-refundable.

Winter 2015 Freshmen Orientation 101 Dates:
  • Wednesday, January 7, 2015

    A complete schedule of events for students and parents will be made available as soon as possible.


    *Only offered during Summer Orientation 101*
    The purpose of the New Student Reader Program is to orient new students to our academic community at Salisbury University by having a common reading experience with fellow classmates, faculty, staff, and upper-class students who serve as orientation team peer leaders. The goal of the New Student Reader Program is to engage students in discussions, projects, curricular and co-curricular opportunities generated by a common reading experience.



    *Only offered during Summer Orientation 101*
    Salisbury University has been offering summer outdoor program experiences to the incoming freshman class for over 30 years. These optional but highly recommended experiences combine outdoor adventure with an introduction to what it takes to achieve success in college. Explore our Outdoor Program brochure to learn more about the four programs offered in 2014. Registration will begin in May 2014 through your GullNet account (and you may also sign up during Orientation 101).

    Note: Spaces in the Outdoor Programs are limited and tend to fill quickly. Registration is conducted on a first come, first served basis. We recommend you register as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment. Programs require an additional fee, which varies based upon program length and destination.





    New Student Orientation is a four-day transition program comprised of residence hall move in, commuter connections, academic and student services programs, getting to know one another, and social fun. All new freshmen students (both residential and commuter) are required to attend all orientation programs.

    Please refer to the information you were provided from Housing and Residence Life about your exact move-in time and directions. Please contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at 410-543-6040 if you have specific questions. The cost of the New Student Orientation program is covered by your orientation fee.

    After your new student orientation ends, the campus prepares for all students to return and kicks off a week of welcome back events during the first week of classes. All new and returning students are welcome to attend any and all events hosted by the Welcome Week Committee - this is a great way to connect with your new friends and to make connections with upper-class students. We encourage all new students to attend the Student Activities Fair during Welcome Week.  This is a fun and easy opportunity for you to find out what different clubs and organizations are on campus and to get connected.
