The Orientation experience at Gettysburg is designed to help new students get acclimated to their new “home” through programming related to academics, student life, and the transition to college. Orientation begins with students’ participation in their first formal event as Gettysburgians—Opening Convocation. The days that follow are full of additional programming to help students chart their course at Gettysburg College.
The Center for Student Success, along with current Gettysburg students, faculty and staff are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus community. Please continue to monitor this page for updates throughout the late spring and summer.
Orientation is a four-day, comprehensive program of events designed to connect first-year and new transfer students with their classmates, faculty, and the broader campus community. Orientation is highlighted by the First-Year Walk, GIV Day, and other programs that introduce new students to Gettysburg College. Check out the Schedule page to get the most up-to-date information.
