Fall Orientation FAQs

What is Fall Orientation?
Fall Orientation is a chance for new students to get acclimated to campus life, learn about resources available to them, and spend time making connections with fellow students as well as faculty and staff. During the three days of fall orientation there will be a balance of educational and social sessions for students. We will also have some activities just to provide some fun and entertainment! Overall, the goal is to ensure that new students feel comfortable and are able to hit the ground running on the first day of classes.

Who should attend Fall Orientation?
All new first year students must attend fall orientation in its entirety. Both residential and commuter students as well as student athletes and international students should participate in the program and enjoy the weekend!

If you have to miss any portion of the fall orientation program, you should email us at firstyear@mountunion.edu to see if that is excused.

When can I move into my on-campus housing and pick up my room key?
New students moving in to their campus housing on Friday, August 18 can pick up their key and move into their residence hall any time after 9 a.m. To do this, you will go to the lobby of the residence hall you are assigned to pick up your key and other move-in information.
