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.
Orientation is a five-day, comprehensive program of events designed to connect first-years with their classmates, faculty, and the broader campus community. The Orientation schedule includes the First Year Walk, GIV Day, and other programs that introduce new students to Gettysburg College.
