Summer 2021  – Get On Board to Stay On Track!

All new Fall 2021 Albrightians, will participate in our summer onboarding with in-person and digital opportunities in the first two weeks of June 2021. Students will be enrolled in their first canvas class which will offer resources, trainings, and ways to get connected to your classmates. Details and dates will be announced in April 2021.


Fall 2021 Coming Soon!

Welcome Weekend 2021 is for all first-year residential, transfer and commuter students, and takes place the Friday – Sunday before classes begin. Guiding you through the weekend is an amazing group of students – your 2021 POPs (Peer Orientation People). 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.
