SUU First Year Experience and Orientation

The First Year Experience and Orientation program at SUU provides each incoming student with valuable, personalized attention from the moment they commit to SUU until they complete their first year.

SUU’s unique approach provides each incoming student with a peer-mentor from our ACES (Assistant Coaches for Excellence and Success) program, who provides personal outreach, academic and extracurricular advice, and helps each student find their place at SUU. ACES contact incoming students throughout the summer in order to assist each student with completing the New Student Checklist and T-Bird Takeoff Modules, as well as to prepare each student for our amazing fall welcome - Thunder U.

Once you have committed to SUU, one of our ACES will contact you to start the orientation process. Don’t stress! Let us help take care of you.

Spring orientation will be the evening of January 4th. Please check back for additional information.
