Fall Orientation 2014

Thursday, August 21 - Sunday, August 24

Welcome to Linfield College Orientation 2014! Our Orientation program is designed to introduce you to the Linfield College community and prepare you for the start of the school year. Fall Orientation 2014 offers a variety of events and activities that will help you with academic planning, allow you to settle in to your residence hall (if you live on campus) and give you the chance to participate in educational and social programs that will help you meet people and learn about Linfield College and the McMinnville community. Enrolling students receive information from a variety of offices and departments during the spring, all the way up through the start of Orientation 2014.

Orientation 2014 attendance is required for all students new to Linfield College. Please reserve the above dates to avoid conflicts with the start of your Linfield College educational experience.

Course schedules, full academic calendars, finals schedules and other academic information can be found by visiting the Registrar web pages.
