• Summer Orientation

    At Summer Orientation, new students and their guests are welcomed into the Gannon family.  As you move through your full-day Orientation program, you will engage first-hand with the comprehensive, values-centered experience at the heart of our University community.  You will encounter the hospitality of the students, administrators, faculty and staff who will help you feel at home at Gannon.  You will connect with faculty and peers from your academic communities.  You will leave with a clear understanding of what it takes to be a successful Gannon student and will create a vision for that success.

    This program is required for all incoming students.

    There are 6 sessions for you to choose from. 

    • Session 1: Monday, June 24 CLOSED
    • Session 2: Wednesday, June 26 CLOSED
    • Session 3: Friday, June 28 CLOSED
    • Session 4: Wednesday, July 10 CLOSED
    • Session 5:  Friday, July 12

    Registration is first-come, first-serve.  All sessions will be capped at 150 students.  Once each session is full, students should sign up for an alternate date, but can still call in and request to be added to a waiting list for their session preference in case of cancellations.
