Spring V-Hawk Orientation


Spring V-Hawk Orientation

Save the date! Friday, January 12, 2024

Welcome New V-Hawks!

V-Hawk Orientation is a great way to start your Viterbo experience and is designed to make students' transition to Viterbo as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Studies show that students who attend and participate in orientation are more successful, more involved, and more knowledgeable about their campus than students who do not attend orientation programming. To ensure student success, attendance at V-Hawk Orientation is mandatory for all incoming first-year students and new transfer students.

V-Hawk Spring Orientation will take place on Friday, Jan. 12, 2024.  New International Student Orientation will take place from Wednesday, Jan. 10 -Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024. The first day of spring semester classes is Monday, Jan. 15, 2024. 

During V-Hawk Orientation Days, new students will meet with employees and current students, get their University ID, and connect with people and resources that will help them be successful during their first semester at Viterbo.

**DON'T FORGET - with the exception of bachelor completion students, all new domestic undergraduate students must complete SafeColleges alcohol, drug, and sexual violence prevention modules online BEFORE classes start. Check your Viterbo email for instructions on how to complete these required modules. Failure to complete modules by the first Tuesday of classes may result in ID deactivation or class registration holds.
