As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
Orientation serves as your first first-year experience on the Emmanuel campus. Meet faculty, staff and student leaders—as well as your new classmates—during this two-day comprehensive program. You will register for your fall semester classes, meet your academic advisor, learn about job opportunities, chat with faculty and more.
Orientation Leaders (OLs) are a select group of current students dedicated to welcoming you, answering questions and introducing you to everything Emmanuel. These students will serve as a resource to you throughout Orientation and be familiar faces around campus when you return for the fall semester.
Our academic advising staff works hard to get you registered for classes in the fall. They provide the support you need to attain your academic goals as well as help you transition into life as a college student.
Before the conclusion of Orientation, you'll have the opportunity to meet Emmanuel's Dean of Students, Dr. Joe Onofrietti—a great resource for all our students. Thorough this interactive workshop, "Dr. Joe" will address Emmanuel's academic policies and procedures with the help of the OLs.
The sense of community at Emmanuel is as much academic as it is social. Our goal as a liberal arts and sciences college is to develop your intellectual potential and to position you for success at the college level and beyond. You will be introduced to members of our faculty who will inform you about the academic support that is available to you as an Emmanuel student.
What interests you? Is it athletics? Studying abroad? Internships? Alternative Spring Break? It will all be on display at the Student Resource + Employment Fair. Student leaders and staff members will be on hand to inform you about the opportunities available to you as an Emmanuel student. Offices include: Athletics, Bon Appétit, Campus Ministry, Counseling Office, Campus Safety, Information Technology, Residence Life & Housing, Student Activities & Multicultural Programs and the Career Center.
