New Student Orientation


This Orientation program is to help our newest Eagles become familiar with our campus while gearing up for academic success. The program consists of a one-day orientation in which the new students meet their faculty and classmates as well as important staff at St. Joseph’s College. New students will observe various workshops on campus resources, meet other new students and given time to finalize your last minute needs before the semester begins. New Student Orientation includes both First Year and transfer students.
