January Term Orientation

New students who begin in January (J-term) have a very personalized orientation... it's just one of the benefits of joining our campus during one of the slower times of the year.

While you will be able to have a full campus orientation at the beginning of February, new J-term students have an informal lunch at a local hangout with a handful of orientation leaders and other students from around campus who want to meet you and tell you all about Union.

Also, before you come to campus in January, please make sure you look over and complete these necessary forms.
