What to Bring for Orientation

  • Cell phone and charger - Posting New Student Orientation selfies to your Snapchat story, tweeting about how much you love your new school, and adding contact information for all your new friends will drain your battery! Don't forget to bring your charger, especially if you're staying overnight. 
  • Dress for the weather - We don’t want you to be caught out in the rain, so bringing an umbrella is always a good idea. Although it may be hot and sunny outside, it can get cold inside air-conditioned buildings, so a light jacket or sweater won’t hurt. 
  • Sunscreen – ⁣Comfortable walking shoes - Although Marian's campus is compact, you may walk between several buildings during orientation.
  • Questions - We recommend you start a list now with all the questions you have about Marian and bringing it to orientation. We want you to leave with all of your questions answered, so you feel confident and ready to begin your college journey! 
  • A list of any dual-credit courses you're currently taking - If you were admitted to Marian in the fall, there's a good chance we're not yet aware of any dual-credit, AP, or transfer credit to take this past spring. We recommend listing out those courses or bringing an unofficial transcript to share with your academic advisor.
