Have you ever wondered what it would look like to completely change the new student experience on your campus? As one of the first large, public universities to make the transition from in-person to online orientation, we will discuss how we led the campus through this very significant change as well as how we centralized communication for new students, transitioned to hosting supplemental in-person summer programs, moved to a just-in- time approach for communication and information, and greatly expanded Fall Welcome from 25 sessions to more than 230 sessions in just two years. We will share the challenges and successes that resulted from overhauling the program, so you can learn from our experience and innovate at your own institution with success!
