Orientation

Freshman Orientation

What Happens at Orientation?

  • Meet an Academic Advisor: Faculty advisors from your college will be available to answer questions, go over details about your major, and talk about what it means to be a UMass Lowell student. 
  • Check Out the Campus: Take a closer look at the classrooms, dining halls, residence halls, libraries, athletic facilities, and the UMass Lowell Recreation Center. Knowing your way around our three main campus areas is essential! We will also help you identify and locate the resources related to your major.
  • Learn About Student Life: Many services and opportunities are available to you including academic support from "CLASS," counseling and health services, and fitness and sports programs. Campus jobs, leadership training and participation in clubs and organizations all provide ways to get involved and make great use of your time.
  • Make Connections: Meeting other students, current and entering, makes the campus a much friendlier place. When you start classes and walk around campus, you will find many familiar faces. Lasting friendships very often begin at Orientation.

You have made a great decision in coming to UMass Lowell!
