Congratulations on choosing Albright College! We’re excited for you to see what it will be like to live like an Albright Lion at New Student Orientation on June 5-6! Spend a night in the dorms, get to know your fellow classmates, eat in the dining hall, and meet your professors.

Selfie in the chapelParents are welcome, too! In fact, we encourage it! Family support and guidance plays a critical role in a student’s successful transition to college. We invite parents to begin this new chapter along with students.

Upon arrival, parents and students will enjoy a welcome reception with Albright College President Jacque Fetrow. Students will then say goodbye to parents and families and move on to an exciting evening full of activities on campus. Following an informative parent briefing, families are encouraged to enjoy a night in town and to return to campus in the morning to help finalize the new student checklist.

The financial aid, student accounts, and student accessibility and advocacy offices will be open all morning for drop-in appointments.

If you have questions about Albright’s New Student Orientation program, please contact the Admission Office at admission@albright.edu or 610-921-7700.
