Wednesday, January 10 thru Friday, January 12, 2018
Join us for New Student Orientation where you'll meet new and current students, faculty and staff. Important information on university policies, campus safety procedures, financial aid, and much more will be discussed. If you haven’t met with your advisor don’t forget to schedule a one-on-one session to discuss registration, degree requirements, or any other academic questions. Orientation is great way to successfully transition to SPHTM and New Orleans. Please contact SPHTM Student Affairs at 504-988-7111 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions along the way. We’re glad you chose Tulane, and we look forward to providing an excellent experience.

The first day of orientation runs from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, starting with registration and the Opening Welcome. Tulane students, faculty and staff will discuss a variety of relevant topics, and there might be prizes for those who correctly answer Tulane trivia questions. Lunch will be provided and can be eaten at your department meeting locations or in one of the first floor student lounges (requires student ID for access). After lunch, you will meet with your department and have the opportunity later to meet with your academic advisor to discuss your goals for your degree and class scheduling options.
