What to expect

Calvin’s orientation programs have three objectives

  • To introduce you to Calvin's purpose, people and programs
  • To help ensure your smooth transition to college
  • To prepare you academically for your years at Calvin

You will participate in academic advising and placement tests so you can plan your schedule, meet with a Student Life staff member, take a tour of campus, learn about Calvin’s core curriculum, your major and academics.
