Orientation is part of an ongoing and multi-faceted transition process for new students at the University of Mount Union, which involves academic, intellectual, and personal development pursuits. The primary goal of Orientation is to inform new students of their opportunities and responsibilities as part of the campus as well as to initiate their integration into all aspects of the Mount Union community.

While you're on campus, check out Alliance, especially State Street. You'll find plenty of restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and overnight accommodations – and it's all right near campus. Also, don't forget to check out our directions to campus and parking information before you hit the road.
