Spring Orientation 2016: Jan. 10 -11, 2016


Your community here on campus is preparing for your arrival. We want you to have an amazing weekend!

During the weekend, we will be here to help with every step as you transition into life here at Simpson. Your SU student leaders are here to serve - you will meet your admissions counselor, resident life and first-year experience leaders. You will also meet your academic adviser, staff members, and professors who will walk with you on your journey throughout the academic year and beyond.

Orientation Weekend is about you, your fellow classmates and lifelong friendships. Hear what Andre, a current Simpson student, has to say about his first-year Simpson experience.
