Dear New Students:

Welcome to the Gannon Community!

We are glad you have chosen to attend Gannon University and we look forward to your arrival on campus for Summer Orientation 2013.
Beginning your college experience can be very exciting but it also has many unique challenges. We are preparing a special orientation program for you this summer, and because we want you to be successful, all new freshmen are required to attend.

Orientation is designed to assist you with your transition to Gannon so that you can adjust easily to collegiate life. Our two-day program will familiarize you with Gannon’s academic requirements, various policies and procedures, and the many opportunities and services available. Orientation will also provide you with information on how to balance the many academic, personal and social demands you will experience. We have high expectations for our students during this important first year. Realizing that you could have many questions and concerns about beginning college in the fall, we plan to share with you vital information that will help you understand those expectations and enable you to set realistic goals for yourself.

Orientation for freshmen is your first major activity as a Gannon student and marks the beginning of your First-Year Experience. We feel confident that your participation in this orientation program will help you develop a sense of being a part of Gannon University and contribute to the success of your new and challenging college experience.

We believe in your potential to succeed at Gannon. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Four two-day orientation sessions will be offered and each session runs Sunday and Monday. Sessions are filled on a first-come basis and reservations received by June 14, 2013 will be given priority:
