The Student-Success Journey: Amping Up Orientation

ChroniclePage_041724_Orientation_Mongoose_CampaignAssets.png

The objective of the college orientation has changed since its humble beginnings as a preview of college life for students. Now orientations are an opportunity for colleges to share their principles with students and promote respect and inclusivity.

In this virtual forum, experts from several colleges will discuss what has been successful (and what hasn’t) as their orientation plans have evolved.

Join us on April 17 at 2 p.m. ET to learn more about cultivating unity within the first few days on campus.

With Support From the Mongoose.

Host: Katherine Mangan, senior writer, The Chronicle of Higher Education
