    Check-in: Scott Center Theater Lobby, 5:30pm

    (Snow day: Thursday, January 25, 6-8:30pm)

    At the event, you will receive:

    • Area of Study Information
    • Blackboard Login Information
    • Your student photo ID
    • "Find Your Classroom" tour

    Reservations are not required but attendance and participation are expected! Students who do not attend will miss important information. Please bring a photo ID with you. 

    Parents and family members are welcome to attend. The orientation includes a special session just for them, which includes information on supporting their college student.

    Tips and Recommendations

    Plan some time to purchase books from the Carroll bookstore prior to or after the event. If purchasing them prior to the event, we recommend you have a place to store them rather than having to carry them with you. Plus, we provide a lot of extra things to carry during the program!

    Spring classes begin on Monday, Jan. 29, 2018.
