Pre-Orientation Experience

The time you spend outside the classroom can be just as important and impactful as the time you spend in class. Many first-year students come to Union ready to get involved – but need a little help finding something that fits just right.

Union offers three innovative, optional Pre-Orientation programs to give incoming students a jump-start on their college experience. All three programs will take place from September 6-8, 2021. Choose between three experiences that offer community engagement, leadership development or exposure to the outdoors.

Community Pre-O Experience Leadership Pre-O Experience Outdoor Pre-O Experience

Registration for all programs begins June 21, 2021 at 9:00am EST.

Programs run Sept. 6 - 8. Students will arrive September 6.

COST: $400 (automatically billed to your account)

Students whose financial situation may limit their participation in these programs may contact the firstyearexperince@union.edu. Limited funding is available to cover the program fees through Union's Making U Possible initiative.

The deadline to withdraw from programs without incurring a charge is Aug. 13. After Aug. 13, all charges are non-refundable.

*Please note: Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

First-year international students who have signed up for pre-orientation will still be able to attend part of the international orientation (held Sept. 7-8).
