CSE Orientation Fall 2019

Fall Orientation: August 14-16, 2019

Undergraduate Orientation is a three-day, two-night program designed to welcome new students to the CSE community and help them make a smooth transition to the College. Carefully planned sessions offer a range of information and perspectives on life at CSE and provide resources and information that will be particularly helpful during the first months on campus. All new students are expected to participate in Orientation before classes begin.

In addition to making friends and learning about the CSE community, orientation will give you a better understanding of:

  • The CSE mission and community
  • Academic requirements and policies
  • The faculty, staff, and support services here to help make your college experience a successful one
  • What it takes to be personally and financially responsible; and,
  • How to live a healthy life while at college
