2014 ORIENTATION FOR FIRST YEAR STUDENTS
Congratulations on your acceptance to Philadelphia University! We invite you to begin your undergraduate experience by participating in START, our Winter orientation program.
We are looking forward to your arrival. The purpose of this website is to provide you with important information about the START orientation program for new students, which will run from mid-June until late August.
All new students, including freshmen, transfer and international students are required to participate in this program.
During START, you will take part in a number of activities with other entering students. You will be meeting with Academic Advisors and receive your class schedule. This website provides you with a preview of the program; however, you will receive a more complete, updated schedule of events during START check-in.
In order to confirm your place in the START program and provide an accurate count for meals, please complete the online response form as early as possible; all responses must be received by Friday, January 10, 2014 in order to participate in the START program.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (215) 951-2634. I look forward to meeting you and I welcome you to the Philadelphia University community.
Special note for resident students: If you will be a residential student, please consult your housing assignment letter for your residence hall assignment. Meals will be available throughout the START Program. Your Resident Assistant will let you know the time and location of your first hall meeting. If you have questions regarding on-campus housing or move-in, please refer to the housing assignment letter mailed to you from the Office of Residence Life or call (215) 951-2741
