Through a series of online events and activities throughout the summer, all new students - both first-year and transfer - will learn important information and make valuable connections to prepare to join our Redhawk community in September.

You don't need to sign up for an orientation session this summer. Instead, you'll participate in online activities and events all summer long. You will be required to sign up for some specific online orientation events, like your academic advising session, but you'll be able to explore a lot of orientation resources at your own pace and decide which optional events you want to check out. More information will be coming soon and you'll receive these details and next steps, including how to sign up for required events, via email.
For first-year students, there will be a few mandatory activities and events culminating in registration for your fall quarter classes. Other online events, like your monthly small group meeting with your Orientation Advisor (a current student) are highly recommended because you'll be able to meet some of your new classmates, get answers to just about any question, and have some fun! Still more events will be optional and you'll be able to join in as you're interested and your schedule allows.
Yes, our orientation program this summer will include several online events designed especially for families and supporters of new students. Visit the New Students + Family and Supporters web page for more information. As we finalize details, we'll update this page and keep you informed via email.
Your Orientation Advisor (OA) is an undergraduate student who is ready to welcome you to Seattle U, answer any questions you have, and help you prepare to arrive on campus in September.
You'll be matched with an OA and a small group of other new SU students. Each small group will meet a total of three times - once in the week of June 29th, once in the week of July 27th, and once in the week of August 24th. We'll send you an email soon where you will be able to let us know which day of the week will work best for you. Your choices will be Mondays from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m., Tuesdays from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m., or Wednesdays from 11:00 a.m. - noon. All times are PDT, so if you don't live in the Pacific time zone, be sure to calculate the correct time wherever you are!
Once we know your preferences, we will assign you to your small group meeting time and let you know when that is in a second email. This will be the same day and time for each monthly meeting.
Finally, you'll get an email from your OA on June 24th with a Zoom link so that you can join your first meeting that following week.
Your Orientation Advisors are busy planning some awesome social events for July and August! You'll get a chance to meet more of your fellow Redhawks, make new friends, and have some fun! (Karaoke, anyone?)
You'll receive emails later this summer, inviting you to sign up for these events. Check out the list below and mark your calendar! Remember - all times are PDT.
