Details for fall 2024 to come.

Orientation will be held in a variety of spaces on campus. Students and guests can expect to spend a portion of the day in a large lecture hall space with tiered seats that are similar to an auditorium. Seats and desks are connected, although they are adjustable. This space has a projector, as well as microphones to amplify the presenters.

The University Services and Support Expo will be in a large open space, with tables that students and guests can visit, giving them an opportunity to speak with a variety of campus representatives. The select-a-sessions will be held in smaller, classroom-style rooms. Amplification is available in some of these spaces. If you need an ADA accommodation related to amplification or any other accessibility need, please contact mcphs.orientation@mcphs.edu two weeks prior to your Orientation session date so that accommodations can be arranged.

“The day kept us engaged and gave us reassurance that we are supported by staff and faculty.”
