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

You'll move in and get settled on Arrival Day—Thursday, Aug. 25—and begin Orientation 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 program, you'll arrive a day earlier, and for the Odyssey program, you'll arrive on Aug. 23.

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 excellent first semester.
