Online Orientation for New Students Launches August 26
To ensure you are supported and prepared for your transition to university and throughout the 2021-2022 academic year, we have developed two online resources to help you achieve a successful first year at St. Thomas University.
New Student Orientation for Fall 2021
The New Student Orientation has been designed to introduce you to university life, help you better understand how to use technology to succeed academically in online courses you may be taking, what resources are available to you as a student, and much more. Working through this orientation, you will become better prepared for your transition to university. You can also win prizes by completing the different modules!
Academic Success at STU
The Academic Success at STU resource will help you achieve the success you want in your courses. This resource has been designed to help you learn effective strategies in the academic skills you will use in your liberal arts coursework, such as note taking, reading, studying, test-taking, time management, and organization
Both resources will remain available for you all year.
