welcome2023Summer Orientation Options
Our Esther’s Dream program is a free five day program. This program includes living on campus in a resident hall, a 1-credit class, a community service project, and a number of workshops held throughout the week. The second option is SOAR, a one day orientation program. While designed differently, both programs provide students and families with the essential information needed to begin classes in the fall. During either orientation program, you will  receive your academic schedule while meeting with your academic advisor. You will also meet other new students in your academic major. Each of the orientation programs is structured to assist either first year entering freshman or transfer students. New enrolling students must submit an enrollment deposit before registering for orientation. Each orientation session includes a parent program (for Esther's Dream, the parent program is on the first day). Please keep in mind that all college policies apply for the duration of the orientation program.
