TU’s New Student Orientation set for Aug. 16

With Fall Semester classes set to begin on Monday, Aug. 19, Thomas University is getting ready to welcome its newest students.

New residential students will move into TU’s residence halls on Thursday, Aug. 15. New Student Orientation will be Friday, Aug. 16, beginning in the gymnasium on TU’s Magnolia Campus, 1550 Magnolia St. Check-in and breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the welcome session starting at 9 a.m.

From there, students and parents will split into two different tracks. Students will remain on the Magnolia Campus and attend small group sessions in the Student Life Center and gymnasium. Parents will attend information sessions in Smith-Bonvillian Hall, on TU’s Forbes Campus.

“It’s always exciting when our new students arrive on campus to begin their college experience,” said Dr. Robert Bohman, Vice President for Student Life. “New Student Orientation is a great way for students to learn more about what’s available at TU and get to know their classmates and TU faculty and staff.”

During New Student Orientation, students and family members will learn about using student accounts; navigating Canvas, TU’s online learning platform; financial aid; student life and more.

“It’s important for students and their parents to know what’s expected of them,” said Courtney Sinclair, Student Activities Coordinator. “We structure New Student Orientation in a way that will inform both students and parents while also answering any questions they may have as they start their journeys as Night Hawks.”

Registration for New Student Orientation is still available at or by calling the Office of Student Life at 229-226-1621 ext. 1077. Registration is required to participate in New Student Orientation.

On Saturday, Aug. 17, TU’s returning on-campus students will move into the residence halls. Fall semester classes begin Monday, Aug. 19.
