The Summer Orientation Experience

Hear from Steve Pagios and Brian Word-Sims about what you can expect from the Virtual Summer Orientation experience. We encourage you to actively participate in all our virtual opportunities throughout the summer. Through these virtual experiences, you will learn more about academics, resources available to you on campus, and what it means to be part of the Stonehill community. Plus, you'll start forming relationships with your future classmates while you shout BINGO! from your couch (trust us, you'll love it!), complete missions during our Scavenger Hunt and meet periodically with your Orientation groups.

Virtual Summer Orientation Sessions

Your Virtual Summer Orientation program will include six session tracks. These themed weeks will cover a variety of scheduled presentations and programs to welcome and prepare you for your first year at Stonehill. You’ll even be placed in an Orientation Group so you will have the chance to meet a core group of peers. There will be so many great opportunities to meet members of your class and other Stonehill students so that you can create strong friendships and relationships before you even get on campus!

Sessions will be released approximately every two weeks, so check back here and your Stonehill email for more information!

We are so excited that you chose Stonehill College! We want to welcome you, and give you the chance to learn about your Virtual Orientation program.
