If you are a student from a historically underrepresented background or are the first in your family to attend a four-year university, Early Connections Orientation may be for you. Early Connections 2022 will be Wednesday–Thursday, Sept. 7–8.
Early Connections Orientation
Early Connections Orientation is a two-day orientation that starts one day before Seattle Pacific University’s New Student Orientation. It’s a great opportunity to move in a day before new student orientation begins, meet new friends, participate in fun activities, and establish a family of support from day one. It’s especially beneficial for incoming students who:
- Are from culturally diverse backgrounds and identities.
- Will be a first-generation college student.
- Were part of an AVID, College Bound, TRIO or similar college-readiness program.
Ongoing Early Connections
Early Connections doesn’t end after orientation. EC hosts quarterly events throughout the year that promote community, information and resource sharing, and leadership development such as EC family dinners, movie nights, study abroad panels, financial and academic support workshops, and more!
Even if you didn’t attend EC Orientation, you can join Early Connections at any time by stopping by the Multi-Ethnic Programs office located on the second floor of the Student Union building or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
