3. REGISTER FOR PAWS 1

Offered three times during the summer, PAWS 1 is an early-orientation program for incoming students and their families. This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet faculty, staff and new friends. You’ll also benefit from early advising and course selection, and finalizing your course schedule for the upcoming fall semester. You will meet other incoming first-year students and Pride Leaders (orientation leaders), and you will gain an overall feeling of comfort and confidence upon arriving for the fall semester.. Dates this summer (all on Fridays) are June 16, June 23, July 7, or July 21.
