Transitions: New Student Orientation
"For many of you students joining us for this opening celebration of our academic year, you are beginning your first college experiences. You picked a great place."
-President Thomas J. Haas, Convocation Address
This exciting program helps students meet new people, get acclimated to campus, and prepare for a successful university experience. All new students are expected to participate in Transitions.
The Transitions program:
Each new student (commuter and residential) will be assigned to a small group of students, led by a Transitions Leader - an experienced Grand Valley State University student that will guide the group through various programs and activities. The Transitions schedule is designed to share valuable information with students as well as allow for free time to get settled and ready for classes to begin.
