Orientation includes various sessions and social activities to prepare you for life at Tulane University:
OISS and other campus partners have organized a day to welcome you to Tulane University. We will show you the uptown campus, provide orientation for your parents and families, as well as offer Success Workshops to allow you to meet other students and dig deeper into topics that will prepare you to have a safe and successful time at Tulane. We will end the afternoon with a Connect Fest, to offer another change to meet people, but also on and off campus resources and a special Roommate Meetup for those students who are still trying to finalize housing or find a roommate. Please join us!
(For all new international undergraduate degree seeking students)
OISS Orientation is a special program designed to cover all of the information that you, as an international student, need to know, whether this is your first time in the U.S. or you have studied here already. OISS and campus partners will provide you with information about health, safety emergency preparedness, OISS and the services we provide, transportation and cultural adjustment. The orientation also provides a wonderful opportunity for you to meet other international students and it is a great way for you to begin your Tulane experience.
New Student Orientation takes place August 19- August 23. All new undergraduate students are required to attend.
Classes begin on Monday, August 24. Programming for new and returning students continues throughout the first few weeks of classes with the Fall Welcome Program.
Studies show the benefits of participating in orientation programs. Faculty members and advisors see a marked difference in the preparedness and success of students who have participated in orientation.
