Orientation, and our pre-orientation programs like PEAK Experiences, are super fun ways to start out your journey at FLC. While you’re making plans for those parts, make sure you’re keeping an eye on some of the other important steps that set you up for a great first year at FLC.
Be sure to consult your checklist to stay on track to start your semester on solid ground. It covers things like registering for classes, signing up for housing and meal plans, getting your student ID, and more.
Once you’re registered for classes, and you know what books you’ll need, you can buy or rent those books while you’re sitting in your pajamas eating cereal—no need to go in-person and wait in lines.
Sign for housing early and cross that task off your list. Find out about the variety of housing options we have on campus, and check out info about meal plans, too.
