When you arrive on campus, prepare for your car to be swarmed by enthusiastic students in white t-shirts ready to move you into your dorm. That’s Orientation Board! OB is made up of over 100 upperclassmen chosen expressly because they want to help you get acclimated to life at Grove City College!
Once you get your bearings after moving in, they’ll host a luncheon for you and your family as a last hurrah before you say your goodbyes. Later that night, you’ll be invited to a kickoff dance as part of a whole slew of mixers, fun competitions, worship services, and connection group get-togethers – prepared intentionally to help you connect with your peers and find your place in our vibrant student body.
The week following move-in day includes a comprehensive orientation to our academic programs and campus life. You’ll start getting to know other students right away, and you’ll connect with faculty and staff who will be a resource to you personally and professionally in the years to come.
*Both computer orientations start in the Hall of Arts and Letters then split into assigned rooms. Commuting students, please meet in the Breen Student Union, Great Room for a Commuter Orientation special.
All events are in the Ketler Auditorium of the Pew Fine Arts Center unless otherwise noted.
