Welcome Class of 2024!
The New Student Orientation Team is excited to welcome the newest members of our Jacksonville University community. As you navigate your final days of high school and prepare for your transition to college, we know that these last few weeks have been different from what we all expected. We still can’t wait for you to join us at Jacksonville University!
To fulfill the Orientation requirement, students should complete the following items:
Virtual Modules Through Blackboard
During this required online experience you will learn about our #JUstrong community, discover resources from across campus that have been put into place to serve you, and prepare for success in and out of the classroom. You can begin these self-paced modules in early July. Once you have submitted your enrollment deposit, please register here.
Choose Your Own Schedule - Live Virtual Sessions
As part of our virtual experience, students and families will be able to build their own schedule of Orientation experiences and engage with faculty, staff, and students from around the Jacksonville University community. All sessions will take place July 8 - July 24. Join us for our Orientation Kick off on July 8th. You will recieve information about other sessions offered in late June.
Tight-Knit Community Video Conferences
One of the goals of New Student Orientation is to connect you with your peers at Jacksonville University. This year, you can participate in a small group call with some of our fantastic Orientation Leaders. They will discuss what you can expect as a student here, answer your questions, and provide some tips for success in and out of the classroom. We’ll provide details in July about how to join your small group's video conference.
We recognize the uniqueness of this season, and we want to make sure you have all the support you need as you begin your transition to Jacksonville University. You will schedule a one-on-one call with your Orientation Leader (OL) to get questions answered. Your OL will continue to check in throughout the summer. You can expect your initial call in late June.
When we welcome you to campus this Fall, we will continue to provide vibrant and engaging experiences. We look forward to welcoming you on move-in weekend with additional programming.
Stay tuned! We’ll provide details closer to move-in weekend.
