Undergraduate Orientation

Ready… Saint… GO!

Welcome to Marymount University! The university provides orientation programs for new undergraduate first-year and transfer students, and parents and families. Each program is intentionally designed to achieve specific goals for the unique population. Students who participate in New Student Orientation will:

  1. Develop a meaningful connection with the campus community and understand their unique role and place at the university by building connections with other students, faculty, and staff.
  2. Articulate and affirm alignment between their personal values and the mission of Marymount through a better understanding of the University’s history, core values, and student expectations.
  3. Demonstrate the value they place on service, inclusion, and diversity.
  4. Identify campus services and resources that support student engagement, retention, and success.

Summer 2021 Orientation Information

In order to remain responsive to our student needs during this ever changing time, Marymount’s 2021 summer New Student Orientation will include both  online and in-person components. Beginning May 15, first year and transfer students will participate in an online NSO course through the Canvas platform, which will provide important information about Marymount services, resources, and programs. This course is designed to help students become acclimated to the institution, and better understand their important role as a member of the Marymount community.  In addition, incoming first-year students will select and attend one of our 2 day New Student Orientation sessions on June 14-15, June 16-17, or June 20-21, 2021. First-Year orientation session are a day and half program that included an overnight stay in the residence hall. Students will be provided with bedding and lines and encouraged to bring any other items for the night to make their stay comfortable if needed.

In-person orientation sessions will also be available for transfer students and their families entering the university this fall. These 1-day sessions are July 19 and August 24. Orientation is required for all new students.

Orientation Leaders, current Marymount students who have been hired for their extensive knowledge about the Marymount experience, and their desire to help other students during the transition to the Marymount community, will be in contact with incoming students to help to build community virtually through social media and email. To make sure you receive this important information, please make sure that once you have accepted admission, you’ve generated your student account to activate your Marymount email and credentials.

We fully plan to be together in person in the fall and celebrate the arrival of the new members of the Marymount family. We will continue to follow CDC recommendations and guidelines to assure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff.  To stay connected, be sure to follow us on instagram @mu_orientation, or join the Marymount University Class of 2025 page on Facebook.
