New Student Orientation – Albright College

New Student Orientation


June 2023

All new Albrightians beginning in the Fall 2023 semester, will participate in our summer foundations program during one of four days in June.  Deposited students will be able to schedule their day through the Slate portal beginning April 1st.  The agenda for the day includes meeting your campus connections, assisting with campus logistics, and scheduling your fall 2023 classes! Students will also be enrolled in their first canvas class which will offer additional resources, trainings, and opportunities to connect your classmates. Foundations will be offered on the following days from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.:

Tuesday, June 13, Thursday, June 15, Wednesday, June 21, and Saturday, June 24.


Fall 2023 Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend 2023 is for ALL first-year residential, transfer and commuter students. You will be assigned a specific time on the move in day that will take place on Thursday, August 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Welcome Weekend events will start Thursday afternoon and conclude on the evening of Sunday, August 27. Guiding you through the weekend is an amazing group of students — your 2023 Steering Committee and POPs (Peer Orientation Person). You’ll get to meet your POP leader over the summer and they’ll begin to prepare you for life on campus.


Office of OSIL & Orientation Mission

The primary goal of the orientation program, run through the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership (OSIL), is to acclimate new students to all aspects of Albright’s campus. The program offers pre-orientation events throughout the summer for new students to begin making connections. Orientation programs introduce new students to available resources that will aid in their transition to college academics, residential living, athletics, and other student involvement initiatives. Post-orientation programs are offered to engage new students in the campus culture. The overall purpose of the orientation program is to inspire confidence so that new students can balance new challenges and successfully adjust to college life.

The Albright Experience

Each member of the Albright community (also known as an Albrightian) is a unique individual. Once on campus, that uniqueness continues in the way Albrightians think, learn, live and speak. During Welcome Weekend, members of the senior class presented what it means to be an Albrightian, to actively pursue truth and justice while honoring, nurturing and celebrating human diversity in all its forms, and to live, think and act the Albrightian way.
