About this webinar

For almost every campus in the country, summer and fall usually includes welcoming incoming first-year students and their families for orientation. But with COVID-19 and social distancing measures impacting in-person experiences, how can you craft opportunities for students to create authentic bonds while staying safe?

In this webinar, two orientation SA pros, Shaquille Lowe and Kayla Mitchell, will share how their departments navigated the quick transitions, lessons they have learned so far, and tips on how they have created meaningful virtual orientation experiences for their institutions.
