New Student Orientation FAQs


Do I need to attend everything? What do we do during orientation?  

Whether a resident, commuter, first-year student or transfer student, Orientation is an important part of your CHC experience. You will meet your incoming classmates, get to know the campus, and learn crucial information on how to succeed!  


How long can parents and families stay at Orientation? 

Parents and families are invited and encouraged to attend events during the afternoon of Friday, August 23rd. These events include Convocation and the Family Barbecue. After the barbecue, we ask that families say their goodbyes. Orientation events after 6pm are for students only.  


I am a commuter, when do I check in for Orientation? 

Commuters may check in between 12:30pm-2:00pm in Fitzsimmons Hall Lounge on Friday, August 23rd.


I need special accommodations or have more questions about Orientation. Who do I contact?
