What to Expect

During Orientation, we're going to make sure that you have everything you need to start your year off right at Ohio Dominican! We're talking crucial info that will help you get ready for this exciting new chapter in your life. Hear from campus leaders about life at ODU and the resources you'll have available to you to help you thrive in and out of the classroom, from day one all the way to graduation.

Orientation is also a fantastic opportunity to meet your fellow incoming Panthers — students like you that may become your future classmates, roommates, teammates and friends. Not to mention, you'll meet some of our amazing faculty and staff who will be there for you every step of your ODU journey.

And don't worry, new Panther parents and families, we've got you covered! Our orientation sessions are designed to ensure that both our new students and their families have the resources they need.
