New Student Spring Orientation

The New Student Orientation Committee WELCOMES you to Hampton University, our "Home by the Sea." We know that you have successfully matriculated through high school and that you plan to have a greater collegiate experience. To this end, the Committee has developed its "Orientation to the Hampton Experience for Freshman Students" which is designed to meet your needs – our newest Hamptonians. This "action-packed" week of adventure will introduce you to the people, facilities, programs and philosophies of Hampton University.

Orientation is a special time set aside to acquaint you with the campus, programs and activities. Orientation prepares you for the new experiences you will encounter here at the University. We urge you to take full advantage of all the opportunities orientation offers.

We wish each of you the greatest success in fulfilling the obligation you have assumed. We are willing and eager to assist you in every way we can to achieve the goals you have set.
