    In-person summer orientation sessions for students, parents and guardians of The University of Scranton’s class of 2025 will begin next week. Due to health and safety measures put in place in response to the pandemic that allow for smaller groups to gather, the University will conduct eight one-day sessions on June 21, 22, 24, 25, 28, 29 and July 1 and 2.

    Rev. Joseph G. Marina, S.J., president of The University of Scranton, will welcome the students and their families at each of the summer orientation sessions.

    Scranton’s summer orientation is designed to introduce new students and their families to the University’s procedures, facilities and support services, and to provide them with the opportunity to meet with faculty, administrators and staff, as well as each other.

    Sessions for students include information about academic life, the successful transition to college, Scranton’s inclusive community, campus life and mission and ministry, as well as smaller sessions for students to get to know each. A track of sessions is also set for parents that include information about academics, financial aid services, career development, mission and ministry, campus life and strategies for success.

    Student orientation leaders Mary Bunone, a senior occupational therap major from Ramsey, New Jersey; Michael Meyer, a junior neuroscience major from Paramus, New Jersey; and Hirali Patel, a junior accounting major and member of the University’s undergraduate Honors Program from East Stroudsburg; along with a team of University administrators, staff, faculty and nearly 50 student orientation assistants, will participate in the sessions to help acquaint the incoming class to Scranton.

    Incoming students will also attend additional virtual events during the summer to allow them to get to know the University and their classmates better.

    Fall welcome weekend for incoming students is set for Saturday and Sunday, August 28 and 29. Classes for the University’s fall semester will begin on campus on Monday, August 30.
