Orientation Begins for Class of 2018

The first summer orientation session for the class of 2018 kicks off today. Over three days, incoming Undergraduate Studies freshmen meet fellow classmates, connect with advisors, and discover the multitude of opportunities and programs within the school and across the university.

The School of Undergraduate Studies offers sessions from June 4 to July 9, and our team of academic advisors and student orientation advisors is thrilled to welcome more than 1,000 new Undergraduate Studies students to the Forty Acres. The theme for this year’s orientation is “Longhorn State of Mind”.

At the UGS college meeting, Dean of Undergraduate Studies Brent Iverson welcomes students to the campus community. Students will spend time meeting with academic advisors and peer orientation advisors to learn about choosing classes. All session attendees register for their fall schedules on day three. Learn about next steps and resources for students new to Undergraduate Studies.
