August 15th
Orientation Starts!

As a reminder, your Orientation program will begin next week on either Monday, August 20th as a new first-year to college or on Friday, August 24th if you are transferring to ESF. Either way, we are all very excited and prepared for your arrival and Orientation program to begin. The final Orientation Guidebook is now available online at the New Student Webpage. Please note that all new students and families will receive a hardcopy at Orientation check-in so you do not need to bring a copy.
Reminders for New Student Assignments

AlcoholEDU and the Sexual Assault Prevention (SAP) Programs - Both programs are required of all new students and are completed online. They focus on alcohol, sexual violence, and empowered bystander intervention. You should have received an e-mail invitation in August to complete the programs. Failure to complete the programs will result in a registration hold for Spring 2019 courses.

Please also remember to finalize your New Student Assignments including your Health Forms, activating your NetID, ESFiD, and remembering your associated passwords. We will finalize your course schedule at Orientation and help you with ordering textbooks if you need assistance with that process.
A Welcome Letter from USA President James Quinn

Hello everyone, my name is James Quinn and I am the president of the Undergraduate Student Association (USA) here at ESF. I’d like to welcome you to our campus and introduce you to USA. We are the governing body of the students, where we tackle issues, run awesome programs, empower leaders, speak out, and represent students in dozens of meetings and committees across the campus and state. If you ever need anything or just want to chat, please feel free to walk up to any USA member, including me, and have a nice conversation. I hope you enjoy your year at ESF and I hope to see you around!

Student Diversity and Inclusion Office

The Student Diversity and Inclusion Office supports underrepresented students and allies to foster a campus community where cultural diversity is valued and appreciated. The programs and supports aim to prepare all members of the ESF community to effectively interact with others in an increasingly diverse and global society. To learn more about the services and affinity groups students can engage with, visit their website.
Community Service

Each semester, ESF hosts multiple service events such as the Campus Day of Service in the fall and spring, along with several additional opportunities that are made public to students via e-mail. As a new student, you will also have the opportunity to participate in our event called Saturday of Service in which we will volunteer in city, state, and county parks. Check out many of the volunteer opportunities here!
Tutoring/Workshops

We are committed to the success of ESF students by preparing them with holistically challenging student development opportunities that assist in their current academic pursuits and future personal goals. The principle supports in the Academic Success Center include peer tutoring, tutor training seminars, academic coaching for at-risk students, and academic success workshops through the S.E.E.D.S. program.
