New Student Programs and Leadership
Welcome new Bulldogs! New Student Orientation is your best introduction to campus life. It’s where you’ll meet and connect with fellow students, staff, and faculty, get acclimated to our campus community, build a course schedule, learn about important resources and opportunities, and get excited for the fall semester!
This program is required for all new students, and optional for family members. The two-day overnight experience introduces you to residence halls, the dining hall, and navigating your way around campus. Students will stay overnight in the residence hall, while family members can stay in a local hotel.
“Orientation allows our students to connect with faculty, staff, and peers and forge lifetime connections," says Dr. Inge-Lise Ameer, Vice President for Student Affairs. "Beginning their Bryant experience in person will start the process of developing lifelong friendships, mentoring opportunities, and their path of how they will contribute to the Bryant community.”
Welcome Week takes place right before the fall semester as a continuation of New Student Orientation. All new first-year and transfer students will attend presentations, meet friends, and get prepared to begin classes.
Support will continue virtually through the summer, as well as during Welcome Week prior to the fall semester, to continue the conversations from Orientation and maintain a level of support as you acclimate to life on campus. You will also have the opportunity to engage in events throughout the first semester to address questions that come up, build important skill sets, and make connections through a series of weekly programming.
Families will be welcomed back to campus for Family and Friends Weekend in Fall 2023.
