New Student Orientation

Orientation begins Monday, August 3, 2020 in Moodle with an array of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (recorded) content. Asynchronous, on-demand content allows new students to self-pace through required components including community guidelines, Be Well programming, academic success, getting involved, and much more. 

New students will also be able to engage in synchronous, live content for opportunities to meet other new students, build connections, and develop community. Synchronous, live sessions include small assigned Orientation groups, social programming, and online drop-in hours with staff such as deans, Library, Information, and Technology Services (at MoHome, known as LITS) and more must-know members of our community who cannot wait to welcome you to Mount Holyoke. Our hope is to offer in-person orientation components specific to the on-campus experience for new students who are able to join us in person in August. More details and information will be sent to new-student Mount Holyoke email addresses later in July.
