Choose an Orientation Session That Works Best for You

Orientation is the official start of your Merrimack experience! You’ll meet fellow new students and Orientation leaders, talk about resident and commuter student experiences and get tips for transitioning to college. It’s your time to get the lay of the land and get ready to be a Warrior!

We are thrilled to offer multiple options to experience Orientation, including staying overnight in a residence hall, just coming for a daytime session, or participating virtually from home. No matter which option you choose, we can’t wait to see you!
