Welcome, Class of 2026 and Transfers!

New Student Orientation is designed to welcome all of our incoming first-year, transfer, and international students to the Rose‑Hulman community.


Your Rose-Hulman Experience Starts Here! 

New Student Orientation is a large and exciting program to welcome all of our incoming first-year and transfer students to the Rose-Hulman community. You will arrive on campus ahead of returning students, so you have time to get to know us and learn about all the campus resources that are available to you…you will also meet new friends and have A LOT of fun!

New Student Orientation is scheduled to take place from Friday, August 26 – to Wednesday, August 31, 2022.

Students can access the orientation schedule and their JUMPSTART! summer checklist on Campus Groups! Don’t forget, JUMPSTART! items should be completed prior to Move-In Day!


New international students will attend a special pre-New Student Orientation program called International Transitions, which takes place Wednesday and Thursday, August 24-25. You’ll enjoy programs and activities specific to your needs and experience as an international student before participating in the general New Student Orientation. More information will be available in early May.


Because parents and families need orienting too! 

Parent and Family Orientation is scheduled to take place starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, August 26 and will conclude at approximately 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 27. You will enjoy two days on campus getting to know faculty and staff, meeting other parents, and spending some time with your student before they begin their Rose-Hulman career! 

The Parent and Family Orientation schedule is available here. Please note events, locations, and times are subject to change.

The New Student Orientation schedule can be found here. Students can view this schedule (with event descriptions) on Campus Groups. Please note events, locations, and times are subject to change.
