New Student Orientation at Beacon College

Beacon College Orientation

Beacon College Orientation Program

Welcome to Beacon! You are going to like it here! As you will soon learn, the College will become a comfortable and familiar academic home for you — and a community of many opportunities destined to enrich and define your life.

As for every entering class before you, Beacon has devoted the days before classes start to guide and ease your transition to college life. The College’s faculty and staff understand how vitally important this time of discovery and “settling in” can be for you and your peers as you join our proud community.

Our student engagement professionals and student leaders have invested considerable time, care and creativity to ensure that this year’s New Student Orientation affords you and your classmates the necessary time and offerings to become familiar with Beacon’s campus and people, learn about collegiate expectations and responsibilities, and become accustomed to new routines and resources. This is especially critical as you become part of the “Responsible Community” on campus during the COVID era.

We encourage you to download the Orientation Schedule below to become familiar with both New Student Orientation sessions and activities and the modified (remote) Parents Orientation calendar that aligns with Beacon’s COVID-19 policy and safeguards.
