Welcome, Class of 2021!
Join us for New Student Orientation this summer.
We will have three days for Orientation and each student is able to choose which day they want to attend. Spots are first come, first serve, and will fill up quickly. Sign up as soon as you can! Summer 2017 Orientation dates are July 21, July 28, and August 11. Once a date are filled, you will have to choose from the dates, which are left.
If you are not able to attend the New Student Orientation, Tiger Tags can be picked up in the Education and Technology Center (ETC) Room 105. After you have received your Tiger Tag, you can register your card with security and obtain a parking permit. Every car parked on campus needs a parking pass with the exception of one time visitors. For more information contact public safety at 267-341-3333.
Throughout the day you will get a chance to meet with the Dean of your school, other new students, current students, and various offices on campus like Financial Aid and Security, which offer support services for you. Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. We will also have optional sessions in the afternoon, including affinity groups for our Students of Color, LGBTQ+ students, and Students who are first in their family to attend college. In the affinity groups, you will be able to meet students, staff, and faculty who can answer any question you may have about what it is like to attend Holy Family.
