Session 1 Orientation

GIAL Orientation is a 2-day event for students arriving on-campus. Most students attend orientation just a few days before their classes start. Students returning after a leave of absence (longer than 6 months) are required to attend only the second day of activities. For more information, visit our orientation page.  To see a complete list of orientation days available, view our Orientation Calendar page.
