New Residential Student Orientation

Your Orientation Program: August 23-25, 2018

New residential students will attend the Arrival Orientation Program scheduled for Thursday, August 23 through Saturday, August 25, 2018. Note that this program coincides with the move-in to campus residence halls.

Orientation will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • connect with faculty and students in your field of study
  • learn more about the MU community and its expectations for you as a citizen
  • sample meals in the University dining hall
  • obtain your Marauder OneCard (student ID), purchase textbooks, and take care of any last minute business
  • participate in some Millersville University traditions

Your O-Group

You will be contacted this summer by a current MU student who will serve as your Orientation Leader (OL) throughout the orientation process. This student will be a great contact for questions and concerns prior to your arrival in August. In addition, you'll be introduced to other students who will be in the same orientation group with you. You'll have an opportunity to make some connections that will make the transition to Millersville that much easier in the fall.

Complete information about your orientation will be provided over the summer. In the meantime, please refer to the Getting Started Guide (available March 1) to make sure that you get done your arrival pre-requisites.

Orientation Fee

New residential students are required to attend orientation much in the same way that students are required to attend classes. A fee of $335 is included in your semester bill to cover the expenses associated with the program (semesterly housing and meal plans do not start until Saturday evening). Our commitment to campus service providers and material costs prevents the issuing of refunds should you be unable to attend the program.
