Aurora University hosted its first AU4U orientation event for the incoming freshman class on Saturday, May 18. The first-year student program is designed to ease the transition from high school to college, providing incoming students with an opportunity to get to know campus, meet friends and begin an exciting new chapter in their lives. More than 140 students attended the event where peer advisors, a select group of upperclassman, were onsite to answer questions and offer their personal guidance.
The orientation also was beneficial for parents of incoming students. Parents learned about campus resources and had the opportunity to ask faculty and staff questions about academics, financial aid, housing and dining services.
This was the first of four summer events. AU4U orientations will also take place on May 31, June 7 and June 14.
