11:00 AM – Check-in for New Student and Family Orientation (Main Lobby, Student Union Building)

Students are organized in small groups and have a Student Orientation Leader to guide them throughout the process. While some of the programming is facilitated with multiple groups together, this small group aspect is real bonus for those first few days on campus.

There are a few programs in which parents/family members will be in the same session with you. There are other programs where you will be with the other students in your group and your leader. 

Participation in all new student orientation programs is an expectation of the Fort Lewis College Administration. It is mandatory and critical to your academic success.
