Your orientation will officially begin the afternoon of Friday, August 21 – Sunday, August 23.

Orientation Check-In

We will host a virtual check in process on Monday, August 17. (If you have yet to pre-select a time for check-in, please sign up!)

So the process moves along quickly, we have compiled a tasks list to be completed ahead of time. If you complete the list by Monday, August 10, you will earn a Fast Pass, allowing you to complete the check in process fast. This also means you will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. The grand prize is a $250 bookstore gift card to be used to purchase textbooks for either the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester. Please make sure you have each item done.

Arriving at Marian

As part of the process for arriving to campus, arrival times will be assigned. Student living in on-campus housing should select their arrival time. Please pick your time based on your housing assignment. Please do not sign up at the same time as your roommate.

For those students who are living off-campus, you will also be assigned an arrival time. You can select that time by going here.

Orientation Schedule

The start of your orientation schedule can be found here. Some orientation events will be assigned to you based on the date and time you arrive to Marian. Other sessions will be assigned based on your preferences. Make sure to tell us your preferences so that we can create your own personalized schedule by August 10. Note that your attendance is required.

Family Orientation

A virtual family orientation will take place on Monday, August 17 at 7:30 pm CST. Please invite your family to attend. Please have them register and a link will be sent prior to that event.
