First-Year Student Orientation Day

This is a general overview of your Blazer Beginnings First-Year Student orientation day. As you will see, the day is structured to allow you to personalize your experience. Your day begins with time to meet with various campus departments, learn about what we have to offer, and even complete some of the tasks you may still have on your New Student Checklist. You will receive a detailed agenda when you arrive for your session.

8:45am - 10:30am

Check-in at the Student Union

Plan your arrival time accordingly to maximize this self-guided portion of the day.

9:00 - 11:30am

Concurrent Interactive Engagement Resources

This is a self-guided portion of the day during which you can visit all the offices that you still need to meet with to complete the actions on your New Student Checklist (meet with a Financial Aid Officer, learn about Dining, Parking, Housing & see a residence hall room,  academic assistance, health services, and much more!). You will learn about other important departments and places on campus.  Browse our Bookstore and enjoy our beautiful campus.

This portion of the day will involve walking outside and into different buildings on-campus. It gets hot in South Georgia, but in side the air conditioning can be cold. Please dress comfortably and weather-appropriate. Light layers and comfortable walking shoes are encouraged.
