Each summer, new students get a chance to come to campus, meet their adviser, select their classes and get to know their classmates. It’s a great way to start before you really start!

First-Year Summer Orientation

Every summer, new students are invited to join us for two days to kick off their college experience. This is your chance to meet some of your classmates, spend time with an academic advisor, select your first classes and find out about life on campus.

Your family is also encouraged to join you for Summer Orientation. Their sessions focus on tips for college parents, payment plans, housing contracts and meal plans. They can even experience college life firsthand by staying in residence halls during the two-day session (or they can stay in the college’s Kress Inn). For more detailed information, view the 2016 summer orientation schedule of events.  

Generally, there are four different opportunities to attend orientation. Each session has a limited enrollment, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to register early to ensure your top choice. As long as you’ve committed to St. Norbert with your enrollment deposit, you are able to register for a session.

The August orientation session is an abbreviated version of our June sessions.  Lodging will not be available for parents or family members.  Students will move into their permanent Residence Hall room. 

International student orientation will take place August 25-26, 2016. Transfer student orientation will take place Aug. 25, 2016.
