We will be welcoming the newest Bobcats to campus for a jam packed two day program designed to help them begin to acquaint themselves with their new home for the next four or more years.
Some of our admissions student workers took a look back at their own orientation experience and we will share them here.
Hannah Grigorian is a Psychology major from Connecticut. Hannah's orientation was in 2012."I was so nervous before orientation I actually thought I might pass out in the car before drop off. But the moment I stepped onto campus the rest of the weekend went by in a flash of fun, games and great people. Three years later, I'm still friends with the people that were in my orientation group."
Allison Florentino is from Massachusetts. She is an Athletic Training major. Ali's orientation was in 2011.
"My favorite Orientation memory is looking a the "Build Me Up Buttercup orientation group picture. I realized that I am standing next to my future roommate and one of my best friends at QU."
Mariam Nozadze is a Finance major and an International Student from Greece. Her orientation was in 2013
"My favorite memory comes from the very first day at orientation when I pretty much missed the whole day because I was late. But then I met everyone in my group and everyone remembered my name as "the girl who was late".
Amber Gianni is an Occupational Therapy major from Connecticut. Her orientation was also in 2013.
'My favorite memory form Orientation was being able to open up to strangers and leave as good friends."
It will be busy on campus for the next two weeks as our Orientation Leaders greet "their' freshmen. The students will build bonds with their OL's that will last throughout their time here at Quinnipiac and they will meet faculty, staff and the other members of the class of 2019.
