Welcome to Orientation at Heidelberg University!
Orientation is the place for incoming students to experience what college life will be like at Heidelberg University. Orientation welcomes new undergraduate students to campus by introducing them to resources and fostering relationships necessary for a successful transition to university life. Students and their Orientation guests learn about the university's academic expectations and opportunities for development both in and out of the classroom. Participation in Orientation allows you to:
- Become familiar with campus
- Talk with faculty and staff
- Explore your interests in different majors and minors
- Finalize your fall 2013 class schedule
- Meet new and current students and learn from others' experiences

Your college experience continues with Welcome Week!
Welcome Week is the second step (after New Student Orientation) in your transition to Heidelberg University. Welcome Week is only for first-year, first-time, freshman attending HU. If you are transferring to the HU, please see Transfer Welcome Day.
We know that by attending Welcome Week activities and events, students are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, navigate campus and get settled. Welcome Week introduces and builds upon various communities within Heidelberg. By the end of the week you’ll have all the tools you need to start your first semester and make Heidelberg University your own.
Welcome Week begins at 2:00pm on Friday, August 23. All new students MUST participate in certain Welcome Week activities. Please check the Welcome Week schedule for details, dates, and time.
See you Friday, August 23, 2013!
