Orientation Welcome Dinner Event: Evening of Friday, September 27

Welcome, new Falcons! Start your Seattle Pacific University journey off right with Orientation — an exciting and informative three-day experience that will connect you to the SPU community and all of the resources we have to offer. You’ll have the opportunity to check out campus, meet your classmates and current students, and learn more about what it means to be a Falcon. 

All of our new students (both first-year and transfers) are required to participate in Orientation. Students’ families are encouraged to participate in the sessions created specifically for them. Administrators and faculty members will share about our academic programs, student services, and ways they can support their student’s transition to SPU. 

International Student Orientation

In addition to orientation for all incoming SPU students, newly admitted F-1 international students must attend International Student Orientation. For new Fall 2024 admits, International Student Orientation is scheduled for Friday September 27, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. International students moving into residence halls may move in: Friday September 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. Please contact the International Student Services Office at iss@spu.edu if you would like more information.
