2015 Spring New Student Orientation – UC Charleston Campus

January 10th – January 11th

Welcome to the Golden Eagle family!  All of us at UC are excited that you will be joining our community this spring and are looking forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation.  January’s orientation is smaller than the August orientation, but is just as important.  This event is an important step in making the transition to life at the University of Charleston.  

Before you arrive 

Please look at the attached checklist.  This document will let you know which items you need to bring, or complete before you come to campus.  Please get in touch with the appropriate office and take care as much as you can to avoid standing in line at the Spring Check-In Process.
