Orientation Welcome Dinner Event: Evening of Thursday, Sept. 8

Welcome, new Falcons! Start your Seattle Pacific University journey off right with Orientation — an exciting and informative four-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.

Early Connections

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. For more information, please contact the Office of Multi Ethnic Programs.

After the completion of International Student Orientation, international students will join all incoming SPU students for Orientation, Thursday, Sept. 8–Friday, Sept. 9, 2022. For more information, please contact the International Student Services Office.
