Orientation is an important step in the process of becoming a St. Scholastica student. During orientation students register for classes, meet future peers and faculty, become familiar with the campus and have questions answered.
Orientation is a social event with some formal presentations and introductions. The presentations and introductions are kept to a minimum so you can meet and enjoy the company of other transfer students.
You will be introduced to the "Transfer Student Advisor" and learn about what it means to be a student at CSS through a presentation on "Cor et Anima," a statement of student values at the College. Previous transfer students had a good time and thought the event worth attending.
