New Student Orientation

Check your Clarion University Eagle Mail account your Orientation information! If you have not received it, please email

Orientation seeks to provide students, parents, and guests with important information they need about attending Clarion University as well as providing time to meet with departments on campus to take care of issues regarding financial aid, residence life, scheduling, etc.

In addition to providing information and resources, the staff involved in delivering Orientation prides itself on answering attendee questions. It is our goal that all individuals who attend any of our Orientation sessions, get all of their questions answered and feel even more confident in their decision to become part of the Clarion family. To that end, students will:

  • Get to know other new students.
  • Meet and make connections with faculty and staff members.
  • Meet with department offices on campus.
  • Talk with Orientation leaders.
  • Learn about the programs and services available to them at Clarion. 
  • Have the option to review their fall schedule with a faculty member.
  • Gain the peace of mind that comes from having their questions answered.

Similarly, parents, family members, and/or spouses will:

  • Get to know other family members.
  • Meet faculty.
  • Talk with staff members from areas such as Financial Aid, Dining Services, Residence Life, the Center for Wellness, University Police, and many more.
  • Learn about the Parent and Family Association and programming through Parent & Family Services.
  • Receive valuable information from faculty, staff, Orientation leaders, and other parents about the transitional issues their student may encounter in their first year, as well tips for supporting their student as they encounter these issues.
  • Gain the peace of mind that comes from having their questions answered.

We look forward to meeting you!
