Welcome to your new home!

Unfortunately, we’ve postponed in-person June orientation activities to new student move-in at the beginning of the fall semester.

For Students

Orientation provides all students (residential, transfer & commuter) with an opportunity to develop an understanding of all aspects of college life at Saint Joseph’s. While we won’t be together on campus in June, we are excited to connect with you virtually and answer all your questions before you arrive on campus for fall!

What to expect

Kara Heintz ’21 and her team of more than 35 amazing Orientation Leaders (OL’s) are reaching out and connecting virtually with your class.

Over the summer, students will receive:

  • email addresses
  • course schedules
  • parking passes
  • student ID’s

Don’t worry, the OL’s will walk you through the process.

Residence Life

OL’s and our Residential Living office will also hold virtual roommate selection and housing placement. Class of 2024’s housing selection begins in early June.

Academic Life

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) staff are working with academic departments to host informational and social events to welcome new students who have declared and undeclared majors.
