For first-year students, starting during the summer or Fall semesters, there will be orientation offerings in April, May, and June. Orientation will be one day in length and will include an optional overnight stay in an on-campus residence hall. We highly recommend that students stay overnight and get a taste of campus life! This is a great way to meet other students prior to the start of the term. You may even meet someone that you would like to room with in the fall!
On the day after orientation, the university will be offering an interactive trip to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and downtown Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. Spend the night in one of our residence halls and enjoy your first off-campus activity with your fellow Mounties and a special guest! Register now, as space is limited! You don't want to miss this excursion with a surprise twist!
