Orientation will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will have informational sessions for students and guests providing information necessary to begin your journey at Holy Family. Throughout the day you will get a chance to meet with the Dean of your academic school, other new and current students, and various offices on campus like Financial Aid and Security, which offer support services for you. You will also have time to visit on-campus offices, if needed, and complete any pre-enrollment tasks.
