Goodwin new student orientation

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is approaching. Whether you’re joining us online, or on campus, we’re really looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 4, 2024.

The picture above is that of our main administrative building. This is where we will be spending the morning. Get help with directions.


Once you arrive, park anywhere in front, and follow the blue arrow on the picture through the double doors. We’ll have folks directing you outside, so don’t worry, we’ll show you the way. (Just look for Eb, the Navigator)

The doors will open at 7:30 a.m., with the event beginning promptly at 8:30.

First, you’ll need to check in at the registration table, located just through those double doors, and on your right.

Once you’re signed in, there will be a social hour in the Community Room, a few steps from where you just registered. We’ll have coffee and donuts on hand while you engage with the University's staff and faculty before the program starts.

This is college, so to get you in the spirit, we'll have a t-shirt waiting for you when you get here. You can also visit the bookstore if you want to shop for gear before your classes start!

We also have some homework for you. To get the most out of your visit, you’ll need to watch a few short videos before you arrive. These videos include contact information, emergency protocol and information about various resources on campus. Any questions you have about the videos can be answered on Saturday. The fourth video is designed to get you familiar with the buildings on our campus — a POV shuttle tour of Goodwin.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach out to
