Dog Days

Welcome to Dog Days: New Student Orientation!

Dog Days: New Student Orientation is a program designed to help new students transition into the University. Whether you are coming in as a transfer student from another college/university or a first-time freshman from high school, we are here to help you acclimate to campus and register for classes.

During orientation students will meet with an academic counselor, a major adviser, and register for classes. In addition to learning about academic requirements, students will hear from a variety of campus programs as well as participate in a resource fair. Dog Days is mandatory for all incoming students.

Dog Days orientations for incoming spring 2023 students will be held in-person in early December. 

The Dog Days reservation system will open on October 1st for incoming spring 2023 students and will close on November 15th. The Dog Days student fee of $70 is due by the November 15th deadline.
