What is Orientation and why is it
important to attend?
St. John's Orientation program brings the University
together to welcome new students. Orientation is mandatory for all
new students, whether they are freshman, transfer, international,
resident or commuter students. During Orientation, students will
have the opportunity to become better acquainted with the academic
environment, the support services available and important locations
on campus. You will also be able to learn about the St. John's
experience from current students. Orientation is something you
don't want to miss!
When is my Orientation?
Transfer Orientation is comprised of two sections. The
first is an online tool designed to introduce students to various
areas of the University essential to student success. The
second is a social/fair to give transfer students and their
families the opportunity to interact with the various resources
available to them at St. John’s. Further Orientation
information will be sent via e-mail.
What is an Orientation Leader

University student perspective.
