Your first year at college is fast approaching and you’re anxious to learn about your roommate, your class schedule, school activities, and so much more. But before all that begins, you must attend orientation weekend. Orientation at St. Catherine’s begins on a Sunday, when campus is bustling with first-year students. If you want to make the most of your orientation weekend here at St. Catherine University, continue reading on.
Don’t be surprised when you look around and only see women.
Make sure to wear comfortable clothing for this day of heavy lifting and organizing.
The sooner you get to know each other, the better your year will go. Make an effort as soon as you meet your roommate.
Loosen up and smile! Orientation can be a long, overwhelming few days, but staying positive will make all the difference.
People can tell when you’re faking it. Be yourself and you’ll make the most genuine of friends.
It’s the only way you’ll make friends. Put yourself out there.
The more people you know, the merrier. Reach out and meet the people you’ll be living amongst.
Make sure to ask questions and get to know others, too. It means a lot to people to show you’re interested.
Orientation activities can be awkward, but it’s better to be confident and take part, rather than being standoffish.
Whatever question that is, ask it. It’s better to learn earlier rather than later.
The days are going to be long and exhausting. Get some rest.
Congrats – you’re a Katie now! Enjoy the beginning of this awesome adventure.
