Orientation is a very special time on campus because it is an opportunity for us to welcome you into our community and assist you in making the smoothest transition possible. Through an exciting and informative program of activities and events, Orientation will help you build relationships with fellow new students, returning students, faculty, and staff.

As you acclimate to the campus and the location where you will live, study, relax, and play, you will also learn many important aspects of University life, including:

  • the mission of the University;
  • what faculty expect and how to become a successful student;
  • the student services and academic advising the University provides;
  • your rights and responsibilities as a student at the University;
  • how to get involved in campus life outside the classroom;
  • the lay-out of the University campus (view a campus map);
  • how to access important information, particularly through our website and the campus web portal, PilotsUP;
  • common terminology used by UP students, faculty, staff, and alumni (a.k.a. "Pilot Speak")

We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions about the Orientation program or if you will be participating in Orientation as a new student, parent, spouse or family member and require accommodation in order to fully participate in any of the programs or activities listed here, please feel free to contact us by phone at 503.943.7470 on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or by e-mail: Office of Student Activities.
