Our orientation experience for students is threefold – summer tasks and assessments listed on this site and Fall New Deac orientation. We are currently in the process of creating our online Fall Orientation, “New Deac 101,” which is expected to launch in mid-July with details about when each module will need to be completed. This Orientation will be completely online (via Canvas). Students will have the opportunity to work through information being provided by more than 30 campus partners, from the Office of Wellbeing to the Office of Personal and Career Development.
Finally, students will work through an online extended Orientation module during the month of September, aimed to get them well acquainted with academic resources and bystander intervention training.
