First-year student orientation is an important part of your Thiel education—it is the beginning of four years that will shape your future. This program is designed to help you with the transition to college, to lay out the College’s expectations of you and educate you about various on-campus opportunities.
You will also receive a mailing in August with information about your move-in times on Friday, Aug. 26. Contact Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Residence Life Bobbi Mutinelli at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Please report to the gymnasium parking lot located off of Route PA-58 (College Avenue). Follow signs for new student orientation. Once you arrive, you will pull through a convenient "drive-in" for new student check-in. Students will receive their orientation schedule and other important information for the day. If you have not finalized your financial aid package or business account information, you will be directed to meet with a Thiel representative prior to moving into your residence hall.
