Welcome, Regent, to the exciting start of your Regent Experience! In order to give all of our freshmen a shared experience in their first week as Regents. With Freshman Orientation taking place on-campus Saturday, August 15 – August 17 , we couldn’t be more excited. Freshman Orientation is packed with team-building activities, discussions lead by student leaders and faculty, fun surprises, and more! At the end of Orientation, first-year students will have made new friends, become invested in their First Year Seminar groups, and begun to build a cohesive class of Regents.
