What about orientation (Getting Started), and what does it involve?

Cedarville's Getting Started program assists new students and their parents in their adjustments to campus life and acquaints them with the academic responsibilities and opportunities for involvement. Students and staff will greet you, direct you to where you need to go, and respond to any questions you may have. New students are expected to attend the Getting Started session. A detailed schedule of orientation sessions for parents and new students will be mailed to all new students. You can also view the orientation schedule on the Spring Getting Started homepage.
