Office of Orientation Mission

The primary goal of the orientation program 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.

Uniquely Albright 2018: A Welcome Weekend Presentation
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.
