Orientation + Launch

LAUNCH into the school year!

Participation at ORIENTATION + LAUNCH is critical to your success at St. Mark's College. This program is your chance to meet new and returning students, learn about all the services available to you, and gather important information from Academic Advisors and other staff and faculty. We offer a welcoming and friendly environment focused on building a community that will set you up for success during the school year!

This event is primarily for all domestic and international students who are coming directly from high school, transferring from another college or university, new to the school (eg. you started this summer), or entering the St. Mark's BA program, as well as any returning students.

Event Details

This year's orientation will be a combination of online and in-person activities. Online information will be available through your Canvas account while an in-person event on Tuesday, September 7, and a virtual event on Wednesday, September 15, can be chosen as the main event.

Additional pre-orientation activities will be available prior to the start of classes up until the first two weeks of classes.

Please check your email in early August for complete details of orientation activities. If you do not receive an email, contact Student Life at [email protected].

Returning students wishing to become an orientation leader, please contact Gerard at [email protected].
