  • Sept. 8th 2020: Hybrid New Student Orientation Day! (9:30 am – 4:00 pm)

Orientation is a key component to your experience at Ambrose. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to dive into the community along with other new students who are just as nervous and excited as you are. We're following all recommended Covid-19 safety precautions to make sure we can build community while keeping everyone safe. During orientation you will get to meet student leaders, faculty, and hear about the services and resources at Ambrose as well as prepare yourself for the upcoming Academic year. While much of this will be done online with fun, interactive ways you can meet fellow new students, we will have an in-person portion with small, socially-distanced cohorts. New students will receive a welcome box with goodies inside that will equip them with their upcoming studies and life here at Ambrose. Orientation is crucial to your understanding of the school and the community but here at Ambrose we make it an enjoyable and exciting experience to get you in the right spirits for the school year. We are excited to celebrate with the new students in this hybrid orientation!
