Student Life

Alma College Orientation Week

Meet your classmates, explore the campus and find your place during this first-year-only week.

Orientation is a first-year-only week of activities designed to get you comfortable with campus, introduce you to fellow students and experience your first college course. You will be enrolled in a first year seminar course that interests you, and you will have a first year guide to help with the transition into college. 

First Year Guides (FYGs) are students who will be guiding you around during your first few days on campus. They are peers who will be with you during your first semester on campus. Their role is to help you get engaged, learn about campus, and enjoy your first semester. 

FYGs will take you to the fun and exciting orientation events where you’ll meet your first friends at Alma. Past orientation events have included: comedians, hypnotists, slip and slides, movies in the pool and more!

We can’t wait for you to start your adventure as a #NewScot at Alma!
