Start Your Clark Journey
We are excited to welcome you to Clark for fall 2021! Our in-person Orientation programs for first-year and transfer students are designed to help you and other new students begin the collegiate journey.
First-Year Orientation begins with Move-In Day on Thursday, Aug. 19.
New Transfer Student Orientation begins with Move-In Day on Friday, Aug. 20.
During Orientation, you will:
- Move into your residence hall, unpack, and get prepared for the academic year. (Commuter students are invited to join us for a special reception as part of Orientation.)
- Be assigned a peer mentor who will support you through Orientation and the Navigator program. You will meet one-on-one, as well as in a group of your peers, to talk about transitioning to campus, learn more about all Clark has to offer, and have your questions answered.
- Attend sessions created just for you about how you will be academically successful at Clark, and learn all the ways you can get involved, serve our community, and become connected.
- Make new friends, explore the campus and Worcester, and be prepared for the first day of classes!
Admitted students will receive more information in their Clark email soon!
