  • Orientation & Transition Programs For Accepted Students

     First Year Seminar 2

    Congratulations!  You can officially say you are a part of the Gannon Family.  As an incoming student at Gannon University, you are about to embark on one of the most significant and memorable phases of your life.

    You probably can't wait to begin.  So don't!

    Here is what you need to know before you arrive in January or August.

    Orientation and Transition programs are designed to provide you with all necessary information before you move-in and officially start in August.  They also connect you with people, places, and programs so that you can begin creating a vision of what you want your Gannon experience to be.  This allows you to hit the ground running once you get to campus, so that you can make the most out of your college experience.

    Your Orientation and Transition programs include:

    1. Accepted Student To-Do List that includes everything you need to complete before the semester begins.
    2. New Student Orientation is a one-day transition program in the summer designed to make sure you know exactly what to expect as a new student on campus.
    3. Gannon Welcome Week which is an extended orientation model that kicks off your Gannon experience.

    These programs collectively make up an informative and interactive experience so that you can have the best transition to college possible.

    Our priority is to ensure that you have everything you need to be successful which includes information, resources, connections and a sense of belonging at Gannon.

    Please make sure that you are checking your Gannon email regularly as our office will continue to send updates via email when new information becomes available.  This includes information about registration dates, as well as new move-in dates and details.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Leadership Development and Campus Engagement directly at or (814) 871-7138.

    We look forward to seeing you soon!
