Spring Term Orientation

Congratulations on your decision to join the Spring incoming class and make Landmark College your new home for living and learning! We look forward to officially welcoming you soon. These pages will help you plan steps to take before your arrival and provide information about campus life here at Landmark College.

Students are required to attend all aspects of Orientation. Family Orientation sessions are optional, but we strongly encourage families to attend these sessions.

Please plan to arrive on time on Thursday morning, January 23, between 9 and 11:30 a.m. for Student Registration/Orientation.

Students and families will part ways after the welcome session. Attendance is critical in laying the foundation for their academic and social confidence here at Landmark College, whether this is their first time to college, or they are transferring.

  • Follow the signs on campus to locate the Strauch Family Student Center. There is ample parking in the parking lot adjacent to the Click Center. View the Campus Map.
  • Students will move into their Residence Hall immediately following registration, which closes at Noon. Typically, student registration takes approximately 30 to 90 minutes to complete. Students and families will be able to drive their personal vehicle to the student’s specific Residence Hall to unload belongings for the room. Parking for the day will be in a parking lot close by the halls. Students will stay on campus Thursday night and each night thereafter.
  • Lunch on Thursday is complimentary for families.
  • Orientation sessions for students begin at 2 p.m. on Thursday and will continue throughout the day and evening. Student orientation continues on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  • There is a Convocation Ceremony that begins at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 25. Convocation is the official start to the semester and will include faculty, staff, students, and families. Convocation takes place in the Greenhoe Theater Fine Arts Building.
