Orientation and Welcome Week are designed to help you get familiar with campus and the resources available here to help you succeed! It is a time where everyone is new and getting to know one another. Take advantage of the chance to make some new friends and explore ways to get involved.

Orientation Programs

Orientation is so much more than class registration and academic advising—it's your official introduction to Heidelberg! Orientation is going virtual this summer, but you’ll still get 1:1 time with Heidelberg faculty and staff, and the opportunity to meet some of your fellow students. Once the enrollment fee is paid, students are able to register for an orientation session by logging into OASIS.

New Student Orientation

All new students must register for, and virtually attend, an orientation day prior to arriving in the fall.

Welcome Week

Welcome Week showcases Heidelberg’s many resources for academic, personal, and professional success and features activities planned just for you, the new HU student. Welcome Week will put you on the path to success at HU by:

  • Providing you with an opportunity to connect with the HU community, reconnect with your advisor, and establish meaningful relationships with students and faculty that will be the foundation for your academic and personal success throughout your college experience.
  • Encouraging a first-year student identity, building independence, furthering HU pride, recognizing your individual role and responsibility as a member of the HU community, and helping you develop a sense of ownership of and accountability for your college experience.
  • Allowing you to become an expert in navigating the campus while discovering the many resources available at HU. These resources meet the diverse needs of our students, and will empower you to create a successful college experience.

The Welcome Week schedule is coming soon. Please note that these events could change; students will receive a detailed copy of the schedule at Check-In.

Some Welcome Week activities and events are required for all new students. We understand that some students may have conflicts and wish to be excused from some or all programming. The Office of Student Engagement may grant exemptions to students who demonstrate conflicts that are deemed sufficient to warrant an exemption. The exemption form will be linked here once the schedule is posted. 

Have Questions, Concerns, or Special Needs?

We want all of our students to be set up for success at HU. We can best assist you by understanding any factors that could affect your college learning or adjustment. Please consult our FAQ page or contact the Office of Student Engagement with questions or requests at  419-448-2207 or orientation@heidelberg.edu.
