With the recent news that fall semester classes will be online, we are adapting our extensive fall 2020 orientation program for the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and the Tacoma community. Every new and transfer student is registered for Orientation and will have a detailed schedule in their myPugetSound portal the week of Aug. 17.
Even in the pandemic, new and transfer students will be able to connect with their peers and be introduced to the campus community. Through our online fall 2020 Orientation, students will meet their Bookends faculty, faculty advisors, peer advisors, and Orientation leaders, and will learn about other campus resources.
We are continuing to adapt the timing and delivery of programs to accommodate students in various time zones, and we are investing in innovative technology so that our Orientation leaders may easily connect with their groups.
