Orientation and Student Engagement

We work to ensure all new Captains feel connected to their fellow classmates and are prepared to begin classes this fall.

This year our orientation program will have a combination of online and in-person experiences to help you transition to college life. There will be more offerings throughout the summer, including:

  • Weekly newsletter outlining the theme of the week
  • Links to video content from faculty, staff and students
  • Weekly meetings with your crew

Setting Sail and Welcome Week will take place in-person for students and begin the day following your move to campus. Starting with Setting Sail, taking place on August 22, 23, or 24, your Welcome Week schedule will begin after this initial session. Your exact date for orientation will be set for you in conjunction with your assigned move-in date determined by your housing assignment. You will be automatically registered for your specific date and schedule.

Crew time is an important part of your transition and will allow you to connect with your new classmates on a weekly basis and learn about helpful resources from your orientation crew leader. While you have been taking part in Crew Time this summer, these small group sessions will continue during both Setting Sail and Welcome Week.
