College is a new beginning and transition for both students and their family members -- one we are excited to help you navigate!
Orientation is intentionally designed to introduce you to life at Occidental College - from academic expectations to opportunities for intellectual, cultural, and social involvement.
After participating in Orientation, it is our hope that you feel more comfortable in your new home and ready to start off your first semester and college career.
New Student Orientation is compulsory for all incoming new students (including transfer, exchange, and visiting students). You can learn more about our Fall & Spring Orientation Programs by exploring the links in the right hand navigation.
