Freshman Orientation

Freshman Orientation 2016

Freshman Orientation is a two-part welcome to the LMU Lion family.

June Orientation is a two day overnight program in which students have the opportunity to connect with peers and faculty and schedule classes. Students will meet with academic advisors and have a residence hall experience by staying overnight on campus.

Come August, it is time for Welcome Weekend. Students will attend the second part of Orientation sessions, move in to residence halls, meet with Residence Hall advisors, and attend LMU’s big beginning of the year kick off: Academic Convocation!

Both June and August programs are mandatory for incoming students. If you are a student joining us from overseas, please refer to our schedule for International Student Orientation here.
