New Student Orientation, August 20-24

Dominican’s orientation team has designed a program to help students get to know each other, become more familiar with campus, learn about Dominican’s history and unique traditions, and have a great time starting their college experience.

Orientation is required for all first-time freshmen students. Transfer students, though not required to attend, are invited to participate.

“Some of our most successful students at Dominican are those who have made the effort to get involved with what is happening on campus, and that process begins with the orientation program,” said Paul Raccanello, Dean of Students.

Planned activities include a welcome address by President Mary B. Marcy; the ultimate icebreaker activity; a mystery bus excursion; introductions to faculty and support staff; games and an outdoor movie; and sessions focused on services and co-curricular activities available to all students. 

Parents are invited to attend a special session on Aug. 20 that will provide tips for working with, and supporting, students as they progress through their university experience.
