Orientation + Launch

LAUNCH into the school year!

The best way to succeed at Corpus Christi is to start from day one. Our in-person orientation called LAUNCH is the perfect way to begin your school year and this event is your chance to meet other students, staff and faculty! Providing academic resources, important documents and fun activities, the entire community comes together to welcome you to your new learning community and celebrate the start of the school year.

If you are a new Corpus Christi-St. Mark’s student coming directly from high school or transferring from another college or university then LAUNCH is for you. If you are recently new to the school (Ex. you started this summer), you are entering the BA program or you are an international student this event is also for you.
