Orientation at Connecticut College prepares you for an amazing first year. 

You'll move in and get settled on Arrival Day, and Orientation begins that evening. Your student adviser and other student leaders will help you get settled and acquainted with the organizations, traditions and activities of Connecticut College. If you are a new student participating in the Genesis or Odyssey programs, you'll arrive a day earlier.

Beginning the moment you arrive, you’ll get to know your classmates, faculty, staff and, of course, the beautiful campus. During the week student leaders (including the Orientation Committee, Housefellows, Floor Governors and Student Advisers) and faculty members will help you prepare for an amazing first semester.
