Orientation Weekend Schedule 2020

Orientation Weekend for New First-Year and Transfer Students will take place Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23. You will kick off the program meeting with your Orientation Leader and the other students in your Orientation group or O-group.  Through the weekend you will learn about the many resources available to you and have all of your questions answered to set you up for a successful first semester. The weekend is packed with opportunities to be a part of some Muhlenberg traditions, understand the expectations of you as a student and member of the Muhlenberg community, and, of course, have fun, in a safe and welcoming environment.

The Orientation Weekend Schedule is subject to change while Muhlenberg College continues to monitor COVID-19. All programs, meetings, and events will take place in either small groups in a socially-distanced setting (outdoors or in approved classrooms) or completely virtual. All of Orientation Weekend will be available as a hybrid experience for students to take place completely virtually or in-person.
