Orientation welcome video
(Video premieres Sunday, September 6 at 3:30 p.m.)
This program will be a mix of in-person and virtual sessions. The in-person sessions will include check in and "Claiming Your St. Kate's Education" on Tuesday afternoon. The remainder of the sessions will be virtual.
Any student who is unable to attend in person should email email@example.com to connect with the Orientation staff. They will ensure that you have everything you need to participate. Students will receive specific details about coming to campus for check in and "Claiming Your St. Kate's Education," as well as joining the live sessions in August.
You will also have access to an online orientation, which is hosted in Brightspace D2L. To find the online orientation, look for the "Welcome to St. Kate's" course.
Over the three days, you will have the opportunity to connect with your TRW classmates and Orientation Leaders, learn about important University policies and procedures, become familiar with campus resources, and adjust to life as a Katie. A full schedule will be mailed in early August with complete details about what to expect at orientation.
In order to protect our staff and students, Orientation check in will be staggered over the course of several days and will take place September 3–6. Students will have one assigned check-in slot on one of these days where they will come to campus to pick up their Orientation materials.
Check-in will take place on the Coeur de Catherine (CdC) south patio (rain site: Atrium 1, CdC). We recommend you bring a copy of your class schedule so that you can find the buildings for your in person courses and begin to become familiar with our beautiful St. Paul campus. Our Orientation Leaders will be here to greet you, answer questions, and assist you in finding your class locations.
- Resident Students: You will check in for Orientation within your same assigned window for checking in to your residence hall.
- Commuter Students: You will receive an email in mid-August inviting you to sign up for a check in date and time slot.
Unable to come to campus for check-in? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to receive your Orientation materials.
Please note that you will not be able to bring guests into the Orientation check in area.
During Orientation, you will meet with your The Reflective Woman instructor and class and begin a conversation that will be a foundation and springboard for your education at St. Kate’s. Please make sure to complete the required readings below prior to Orientation.
