General Sessions

General Sessions are held throughout the year. General Sessions include important information on key resources and strategies for success, plus a campus tour. As a new student, you are encouraged to attend an orientation that best matches the campus you will be attending in your first year. Your Advisor can provide more information on these specific sessions.
