New Student Orientation

Designed to make sure you feel right at home on campus.

After a summer of relaxing, working and getting ready for college, we have a few events to help all of our first year students prepare for the start of the semester.

Peacock Mascot
Peacock Prep Day
 is a mandatory one-day program for all first year students and their parents or guardians. During this event you will take care of registering for classes, meeting students, creating a financial plan and more! This is the time to get ready for the fall and receive your fall semester academic schedule, meet with a financial aid counselor for a final review of your tuition bill, and connect with campus resources to aid you and your family in the transition to university life.

In order to register for Peacock Prep Day students must first pay their tuition deposit.

Student Schedule | Parent Schedule

Parents or guardians are strongly encouraged to join us at Peacock Prep Day. The parents’ program is separate from the students’ program. Sessions help prepare for the role of parenting a college student. Parents also learn about academic expectations and are introduced to Saint Peter’s important policies and processes.

Pre-Orientation is a highly recommended program that offers new students a chance to connect with peers, faculty, and staff before the semester starts. This program is designed to give students the opportunity to become acclimated with the Center for Academic Success and Engagement (CASE) and take the first steps toward becoming a member of the University community.  There are two dates available to choose from.

Thursday, June 15, 2023 from 12:00PM until 3:00 PM
Thursday, June 22, 2023 from 2:00PM until 5:00PM
