Orientation for New Undergraduate Students


Starting college can be both exciting and challenging at the same time.  No worries, our orientation programs will introduce you to learning at Alverno.  Faculty and staff welcome you to this community of learners and are here to support you throughout your educational journey. 

Student Orientations

At Alverno, we are proud of the many distinguishing factors that make our style of teaching and learning unique - approaches that are specifically designed to help each student succeed.   

Your orientation will be an introduction to Alverno College and how to start on your individual path to success.

Soon you will be receiving a letter from the Admissions Office with detailed information regarding your half-day orientation -- and telling you which of the upcoming Orientations to attend.
