New Student Orientation
2020 New Student Orientation Overview
Join the Kean community! We’ve planned a fun-filled and academically focused Summer Orientation for the Freshman Class of 2024.
Incoming freshman students are required to attend this important hybrid orientation event. The two-part orientation will equip you with all of the necessary tools for a successful first year at Kean University while helping you find out about campus support services and meeting your classmates.
2020 Hybrid Orientation*
*The health and safety of our students is Kean's number one priority. As such, we have opted to adjust this year's orientation program to feature a virtual portion as well as a socially-distanced in-person portion.
Students will attend 2020 Orientation in 2 parts. Part 1 will include interactive, live, webinar-style presentations about a variety of campus resources and will be held in July 2020. Part 2 will focus on welcoming the students to Kean’s campus safely and will be held in August 2020. Students should expect to hear from the orientation leader frequently throughout the summer and should utilize their orientation leader as a resource to help them navigate into the Kean Community.
Please note that your participation in this event is mandatory, even if you do not intend to take advantage of on-campus housing during the school year.
- If you require disability accommodations, notify the Office of Disability Services two weeks prior to your orientation session.
