Orientation – Summer 2022

Welcome New StudentsOrientation Summer 2022

Take Flight at Post – Welcome to The Nest

Welcome to Post University!  Your experience as a Post Eagle is just starting and we are excited to welcome you to the Nest for a fun-filled and action-packed orientation experience this summer.  Orientation is an opportunity for you to spread your wings and get a taste of what college-life will be like before starting your first semester on-campus this fall.

All first-year and transfer students, including commuters, who have never attended Post before are required to attend and engage in all aspects of summer Orientation.  It’s your chance to build a foundation for academic success, get to know our vibrant campus community, and learn more about the values and traditions that make us Eagles.


When is Summer 2022 Orientation?

We will be hosting two summer Orientation programs in July 2022.  All incoming first-year and transfer students who have never attended Post before are required to choose one of these sessions to attend:

Session A

Thursday, July 21 – Friday, July 22, 2022


Session B

Monday, July 25 – Tuesday, July 26, 2022


All students, including commuters, will stay on-campus in one of our residence halls during one of the two-day Orientation programs.

Students should register for summer Orientation using the form on this page as soon as they have met with their academic advisor and have registered for Fall 2022 semester courses.
