Start your College Experience off right with a one day orientation tailored to the needs of mid-year incoming students. All incoming students — residential first-year, commuter first-year, and transfer — will move in on January 12, 2020 and participate in orientation activities, where you’ll meet friends, faculty and peer advisers who will help shape some of the most important years of your life!

What to Expect

After check-in, your family is invited to attend a Family Orientation Program, which includes a series of sessions addressing many questions related to Clark and what they, and you, should expect during the first year.

During this first day, you will meet the orientation coordinators and your fellow new classmates.

The next few hours are filled with opportunities to discuss academic, personal, and social challenges that you will be navigating in your time at Clark. There will also be a few staff- and faculty-led programs designed to introduce you to life at Clark.

Every person you meet will give you a better idea of the richness and diversity of the Clark community. By participating fully you will discover the exciting options waiting for you at Clark.

Classes begin Monday, January 13, 2020.
