Welcome Class of
2017! We are so excited that you are joining our Ohio Dominican University
To support you in your transition to ODU, we have prepared
an Orientation program that will provide you and your parents with important
information about life as an ODU student and give you an opportunity to connect
with fellow first year students, upper-class students, as well as faculty,
staff and administrators. During Orientation, you will also receive your class
schedule for the fall semester. It’s the perfect opportunity to get your ODU
experience off to a strong start.
New students and their families have 3 orientation dates to
choose from: May 17-18, June 13-14 and July 19-20. Each Orientation will feature a program for
students and a separate program for parents/families. Students are required to
stay on campus overnight. Parents are welcome to stay on campus or off campus.
On campus and off campus accommodation information can be found below.
