New Student & Family Programs

Welcome to TU!

Our orientation programs welcome over 5,000 students and 3,000 family members each academic year. We are so excited to welcome you, too!    

Students must complete a pre-orientation module prior to attending orientation. Students will meet in the afternoon on the date selected, and Zoom information about joining the synchronous orientation session will be emailed to your official TU email closer to the date.
