New Student Orientation
On this day, you’ll officially begin your Viking Voyage! Spend the day on campus, your new home, getting to know your classmates, interacting with faculty and getting a true feel for what it’s like to be a Villa Viking. Representatives from student life, athletic teams and student services will all be present, so when you leave for the day you’ll know exactly what’s available to you as a student at Villa Maria College. While Orientation is mandatory for all new students, parents should not attend.
The event takes place on August 22, 2019 from 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM.
