Below is the schedule for the Summer 2014 New Student Orientation programs.
We have designed this Orientation day especially for new students coming to the College. While there will be many opportunities in the coming months to acclimate yourself to the College, this Orientation has been designed specifically to address those “housekeeping issues” that need to be completed in order for you to fully integrate yourself into the College community. If you or your parents have any questions, please call us at 215.489.2215, and let us know how we can help.
Individualized schedules will be provided at check in. This will be the final schedule that a student will follow for the day and may have slight deviations from the schedule provided below.
