Welcome to the Mount!
Orientation is an exciting and important start to your experience as a new student at the Mount—you’ll learn about the resources and opportunities across our dynamic campus community, allowing you the chance to settle into college life before the Fall semester begins.
This year, we’ll be offering students the opportunity to engage with all things Mount Saint Vincent through virtual experiences and on-campus sessions. Whether you join us online or visit us in person, you’ll be able to meet new people, get accustomed to college life, and start building friendships that will last a lifetime.
New Transfer Student Orientation | September 4
We’re excited to have the opportunity to welcome new students on campus for Orientation! Students may choose one session to attend. Orientation is for new transfer students and/or any new student who did not attend an Orientation session earlier this summer. In accordance with state guidelines and social distancing practices, we are offering two smaller half-day sessions, which will be limited in capacity.
And you don’t have to wait until Orientation to start learning about all about the Mount! We’ve pulled together some videos highlighting various frequently asked questions in our Orientation at a Glance section—check it out below:
