Orientation Mission statement

The mission of the Orientation program is to assist new students as they transition to Carroll University. By exposing students to the numerous curricular and co-curricular areas of university life, we strive to develop a solid foundation that fosters lifelong learning and encourages students to become actively involved members in a diverse community.


What is orientation?

Orientation at Carroll University is an exciting experience. In just a short time, you’ll learn your way around campus, meet key people who will help make your Carroll experience a success and get to know other new students. Our goal is to help you make a successful transition from high school to college. You will be greeted by an enthusiastic, dedicated and professional group of Orientation Mentors - all of them Carroll students. They will answer your questions about academics, roommates, getting involved and life at Carroll. We want to make sure you feel great about your decision to join the Carroll community.
Resident students will move in on Friday, August 31, 2018. (Fall student-athletes may have an earlier move-in date.)
Orientation events and activities begin on Friday, August 31, 2018 and end on Saturday, September 8, 2018.
The first day of class for new students is Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
Please see below for the 2017 Orientation and Welcome Week schedule.  The 2018 schedule will be posted later.

What is it?

The 6-Week Challenge is a program designed to encourage new Carroll Students to participate in campus activities during the first six weeks of the fall semester.

What if I am a commuter?

Commuters are strongly encouraged to engage in the Carroll community by attending campus events, especially the 6-Week Challenge activities.

Why is it important?                                 

It is important for students to participate on campus to establish independence, make new friends, and get to know Carroll and everything it has to offer.  Stay on campus and get involved. Often times, getting over homesickness is helped by getting involved on campus rather than going home.

How can I win prizes?

Prizes will be raffled every week of participation. If you attend enough of the weekend events, you will be eligible for one of three grand prizes.

What are the events?
Please check back for the schedule of events for 2017.
