Orientation Leaders

Your leaders will be with you each step of the way to answer any and all questions you may have through your time at Presentation College. Your orientation experience will begin in August when you arrive on campus for welcome weekend.  As a new student, you will have the opportunity to come to campus a few days earlier than your fellow SAINTS to give you the chance to settle in, meet with your advisors, and prepare for the academic year ahead. We have already begun to prepare for your arrival in August and the Orientation Leaders are eager to meet you all! This year’s Orientation will be an important first step in your academic venture! We cannot wait to welcome you into the PC community!

Helpful Information

Is Orientation required for all students?

Yes, all entering first-year students are required to attend all Orientation events. During Orientation, students will be made aware of resources on campus, have a chance to ask questions they might have about Presentation College, become better acquainted with the Presentation College community, receive their student ID cards, and also finalize registration for classes. Students will be expected to attend the full schedule of events. Students who do not stay for the full schedule will be unable to finalize registration.

Is Orientation required for parents?

While it is not required, we highly encourage parents to participate in the events on the first day of Welcome Weekend, move-in day. These events include student validation, the Commissioning Ceremony and a family picnic. The Commissioning Ceremony is a formal welcoming ceremony we hold in our Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Students and their families are officially welcomed to campus at this time. We also offer a great program for parents with information designed especially for parents about Presentation College and the transition to college. It is also a great opportunity to meet other parents or family members.

Will I be with my parents/son or daughter during Orientation?

Parents can be with their son/daughter during Orientation events on Saturday, August 27th. There will be time to get settled into your Suites, run errands to purchase last minute items together and to visit all of the offices on campus to make sure everything is in order for the start of the school year. The parents program is an event geared toward only parents. We encourage parents to attend the Commissioning Ceremony and family picnic with their son/daughter. The evening family picnic is where families will say their goodbyes and part ways for the rest of the Orientation. The remainder of the Orientation schedule is geared toward students only.

Where do I go for Welcome Weekend?

Check-in for Welcome Weekend will be located in the Strode Activity Center.
