Orientation Week in a Nutshell
“So what’s Orientation Week?” you might be asking yourself. Well we don’t mean to brag, but some people say Orientation Week is the best week of their lives. It’s the best opportunity for new students to discover their campus, meet their fellow students, and learn what it is to be a Gaiter.
