Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have chosen to adjust the New Student Orientation experience from fully in-person to a virtual model with online information sessions during the summer months supplemented by virtual & in-person information sessions during Freshman Week.
NEW UPDATES were added on 7/1/2020 regarding the Orientation Fee and Freshman Week & Transfer Student activities. These updates can be found on our Summer 2020 Orientation website: orientation.louisiana.edu/summer2020orientation and our COVID-19 Updates website: https://orientation.louisiana.edu/resources/covid19-response-updates
