Orientation: Transition Into College

By Purnell T. Cropper | July 8, 2011

“Orientation was, in numerous ways, the first huge part of transitioning into college,” says Alex Mykijewycz ’14. “It was an opportunity to get a better sense of the buildings and resources located on campus as well as to meet fellow classmates with whom I was able to better my understanding of the opportunities and advantages at Arcadia.

“The Orientation Leaders shared their personal experiences about campus life and academics. Their personal stories made the whole experience feel more genuine and provided good advice.

“By the end of orientation, all the information that I learned about and people I had met helped me feel like a true part of the Arcadia community. The awkward feeling I had moving in on the first day was gone, and I felt ready to begin my academic, social, and personal career at Arcadia.”
