New Student Orientation

Orientation at CC is designed to introduce students to all aspects of campus life—inside and outside of the classroom. Orientation is a required program for all new students.

Parent/Family Orientation

Parents, family, and guests of new students are invited to campus for move-in day. Programming for parent/family orientation will take place throughout the day and evening of move-in day. Check this page on the NSO Canvas Site for updated schedule details, and watch your email over the summer for registration information.
