STUDENT ORIENTATION

RVU has a mandatory orientation for incoming students the week before school starts – usually the 3rd week of July. The week is packed with information, instruction and experiential learning activities designed to prepare the students to “hit the ground running” with the course of their first system. Social networking is also a valuable component of Orientation and is accomplished in a wide variety of ways e.g., student social at Veyo Hot Springs, service at the Utah Food Bank and the Annual RVU Family BBQ & Pool Potluck to name a few.
