Starting at a new university is a big transition, whether you are coming to us directly from high school, transferring from another institution, or beginning your college career later in life. For this reason, we require that all new students complete an orientation prior to beginning at the University.
There are several steps you should take to prepare for the Fall 2022 semester.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
This program is specifically for students who are coming to Madonna right from high school or home school environments. Students coming to Madonna University directly from high school are part of our First-Year Experience program, which guides them through a series of events intended to ease the transition to the University. Students are required to attend an orientation program during the summer prior to starting at the institution.
We are currently working to provide students a robust orientation program that will bring students to campus to meet new people, see what campus life is all about, and make connections to campus! Students will be scheduling classes while at their Overnight orientation session.
On-ground Orientation will work to connect you to the Madonna campus, help you meet new classmates, and connect with on-campus resources, faculty, and staff. Our FYE Peer Mentors (students who have successfully completed at least one year at Madonna already) will spend the entirety of orientation with you and lead you through the program. At orientation, you will be introduced to our wide range of academic, social, and service-learning opportunities. You will register for your first semester of classes while at orientation. You also will learn about other First-Year events and programs designed to answer your questions and help you achieve academic success.
