New Student Orientation

Summer Orientation: Friday, June 14, 2024

Summer Orientation is a day for incoming Fall 2024 new students and their families that you won’t want to miss! You’ll have the opportunity to check out your living spaces, get to know faculty and staff, and meet new friends. Learn what resources are available to help you succeed over the next few years. Along the way, you will begin to feel the pulse of the SAU community and become an integral part of it. We are excited to welcome you as a future SAU Cougar as you make SAU your new home. Go Cougs!
