New Student Orientation
Welcome to Linfield University!
To help you get off to a successful start, we have planned a New Student Orientation program that will provide opportunities to:
- Create relationships with faculty, staff, and fellow students to be engaged in a meaningful way.
- Achieve an introductory understanding of the academic expectations and responsibilities of your major.
- Distinguish campus programs, services, and resources that are available to assist in your academic, personal, and social success.
- Identify avenues in which to demonstrate the value of personal engagement, cultural competence, and active citizenship through participation in student leadership roles, clubs and organizations, community service projects, campus diversity programs and civic engagement opportunities.
New students will be automatically enrolled into the Peer Resource Network, a valuable mentoring program for new students as they transition to our campus!
