Orientation is the time when we celebrate you joining our community! Every incoming undergraduate student attends Orientation as an onboarding to their Edgewood experience. This is just the beginning of making lifelong friends, learning the resources you'll use daily to be a successful student, and understand what it truly means to be an Edgewood Eagle.
The Orientation Leadership Team and the entire Edgewood College community welcomes, supports, and empowers new students and families during this meaningful transition. By providing programs and coordinating strategic services that meet the diverse and individualized needs of incoming students, we promote student success and persistence by offering educational opportunities that build community and facilitate personal growth.
All incoming Edgewood College students begin their experience with Orientation! January Orientation is designed to support both first year and transfer students in meeting others, learning the ropes of Edgewood College, and preparing for the first semester.
