Orientation 2014 for the Class of 2018 and Transfer Students

The Connecticut College camel mascot on Arrival Day Orientation takes place from Arrival Day, Friday, Aug. 22, through Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014. Students, faculty, staff and members of the College administration take part in the program. During the first few days, you will meet with your faculty adviser to discuss your course selections for the fall semester. Your student adviser and other student leaders will help you get settled and acquainted with the organizations, traditions and activities of Connecticut College.
