2022 New Student Orientation

A warm welcome to you, class of 2025!

New Student Orientation and the start of your School of Divinity experience is quickly approaching. As you prepare for this new phase in life, we hope that you are excited to join our community of learners. What follows are modules that contain content that you will want to know going into your first year of graduate theological education. By the end of Orientation, you will be ready to begin classes with a greater sense of place and a clearer picture of what your first year of divinity school will be like.

August 16-17, 2022

The orientation will be full of information to help you become familiar with academic vibrancy, student community, and University life. We will get to know you, and you will get to know us, along with resources and tools that will help you thrive here. You will also hear from faculty and current students.
