WHAT IS ORIENTATION?
All First Year Students are required to attend a mandatory two day University Orientation prior to their first semester of attendance. This Orientation program is vital because it shows students the benefits, requirements and possibilities of University life. During this session, students will learn about financial aid, academic requirements for the college of their major, the wealth of student organizations available and much more. Students who have been admitted to the Honors College will also have their Orientation to Honors during the University session. Admitted students must attend all Honors College presentations during their Orientation to ensure they are fully admitted to the College and receive the appropriate benefits.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
To sign up for one of the mandatory Orientation sessions, go to http://usf.edu/orientation/main.asp . As an Honors College student you will be directed to those sessions that have open seats specifically for Honors students. Choose the session that best meets your needs, complete all online forms and submit the required Orientation fee.
On the confirmation page of the USF Orientation site there is a link to an additional form necessary for Honors to develop your schedule. Please complete this form.
You will receive a confirmation in the mail from the Office of Orientation and an email confirmation from the Honors College.
WHAT DO I DO NOW?
At this point you are all set for your Orientation. Just follow the instructions that you get from the Office of Orientation and make sure you arrive on time for your scheduled two day session. Plan to stay on campus until 6:00 PM on day two of orientation.
Continue to research majors, minors, and courses of interest on the USF website. Become fans of the Honors College and Honors College Student Council to learn about upcoming events and to connect with other Honors students. Volunteer or shadow a professional in your community, and enjoy your summer!
WHAT HAPPENS AT ORIENTATION?
At Orientation you will attend a series of meetings to prepare you for University life. Do not panic! Much of what you hear will sound like a foreign language. We call it University-eze and we in Honors will be there to help translate and make it work for you. You will see the staff and student mentors of Honors twice during the two day session. These times are:
Note: These sessions are mandatory for admitted Honors College students. You will not be able to finalize your Honors admission without attending both sessions.
