Orientation Programs

Welcome to Millersville!

College is a journey as much as it is a destination. Over your time at Millersville University you will meet new people who become life-long friends, learn from knowledgeable mentors both in and out of the classroom, challenge yourself, your abilities, and your beliefs, and gain knowledge and skills that will propel you forward in life. At its conclusion, college will have provided you with both a degree and an education. And it all starts with orientation.

The transition to college can be a big adjustment for both you and your family. That's why we provide a variety of orientation programs to meet your individual needs. Whether this is your first time in college or you're coming to MU from another institution, whether you came from another country or state or from the surrounding Lancaster countryside, the goal of Orientation Programs is to position you for success throughout your time at Millersville University.
