We have wrapped up a successful orientation cycle welcoming the students in the Class of 2015 and many new transfer students! Orientation & First-Year Programs would like to express our appreciation to all of you who made these new student programs a success.

This summer, we all worked tremendously hard to transition and welcome almost 5400 freshmen, over 2000 transfer students, about 5000 parents/guests, and about 700 graduate students. We also feel that this Welcome Week - the 4th one - was the best yet with the highest attendance rates. We had over 5100 students participate, that is over 94% of the first-year class! Our student leadership was also outstanding this summer and many of you worked with and supported these students as well. These programs could not take place without your collaboration, support, and cooperation!

Class of 2015 PosterIf you have not already received your free Class of 2015 Poster (pictured right), stop by OFYP anytime during normal business hours. We also have copies of the Class of 2014 Poster that you are welcome to have.

OFYP and the Office of Undergraduate Education would like to personally thank you for your dedication and commitment in welcoming new students and their families to the University community and for contributing to their successful transition. As students adjust to their first semester, many of you are still actively involved in helping these new students thrive. The success of the Class of 2015 is an ongoing commitment and one that we know you are dedicated to achieving.

Thank you for all that you do to ensure their success.

With warmest thanks,

The Orientation & First-Year Programs staff
