New Student Orientation
All New Students
Welcome to the TU family! All new students are required to review the TU New Student Online Orientation below. This orientation provides vital information for knowing how to use your Student Portal (Hawklink), Blackboard online learning sites that accompany all courses at TU, and Library resources available to you on campus or as a distance student. In addition, it orients you to the TU Honor Code and our expectations for academic integrity, as well as orienting you to academic support services and opportunities for your involvement at TU. The orientation is designed to take no more than 30 minutes. Please complete the online orientation from the comfort of your home or office and answer the questions at the end of the presentation. The final “quiz” lets us know that you have completed this mandatory orientation.
If you have trouble viewing these videos, be sure your Shockwave plug-in is updated. You can download the latest version here.
After viewing the above orientation presentations, complete the quiz below. To ensure the quiz submits properly, please use either Firefox or Chrome browser. Welcome to Thomas University!
