Preparing Hearts & Minds with an Online Pre-Arrival Orientation Experience
University of Portland
Creating a virtual orientation experience with Advantage Orientation allows the University of Portland to prepare students and their families before they arrive on campus.
Finding the right methods to reach and connect with new students and welcome them into your campus culture can be a challenge for Catholic colleges and universities. Student affairs professionals want to grow their capacity to serve every student in their transition to college life, yet do not want to lose the ability to provide students with the personal attention they need to be successful.
This session highlights how virtual orientation is welcoming, informing, and engaging students and their families before they come to campus. Students and family members arrive on campus more knowledgeable and prepared, ready to embrace the culture and mission of a Catholic Higher Education.
