All New Students Check-in for Orientation on Saturday, August 24th 

New Student Orientation is a time for all new students to connect with others, learn more about what academically awaits, and resources available to help you succeed.  Orientation runs through the weekend and then all USF students join up in the quad on Monday evening to kick off the start of a new semester. 

New freshmen and transfer students must check-in for orientation on August 24.  New students that arrive on campus earlier than August 24, will still need to check-in for orientation in the Stewart Center at 12:30.  Additional FAQs are available here.
