CAS New Student Orientation Fall 2020

Building Your Foundation for Success at Trinity!

Greetings, members of the class of 2024! The Trinity Community welcomes you and we are delighted to offer you this Virtual New Student Orientation experience.

In the College of Arts & Sciences, we recognize that building Trinity Sisterhood and confidently accessing a support network is vital to a successful first-year student experience. We want to provide you with this New Student Orientation (NSO) opportunity to connect real-time with faculty, instructional specialists, staff, current students and alumnae through small group sessions, and learn about curricular offerings, learning platforms, course registrations, success strategies, career pathways, and more. This is also an excellent opportunity to engage with fellow incoming students prior to start of fall classes.

New Student Orientation Session Dates:

We will be offering sessions on various dates in July and August to keep you continuously engaged with us, starting Monday, July 13. From start to finish, this orientation experience will take six hours to complete over six weeks – one hour each week. Mark your calendar so you do not miss these dates. Attendance is mandatory.
