  • The purpose of the New Student Reader Program is to orient new students to our academic community at Salisbury University by having a common reading experience with fellow classmates, faculty, staff, and upper-class students who serve as orientation team peer leaders. The goal of the New Student Reader Program is to engage students in discussions, projects, curricular and co-curricular opportunities generated by a common reading experience.



    Salisbury University has been offering summer outdoor program experiences to the incoming freshman class for over 30 years. These optional but highly recommended experiences combine outdoor adventure with an introduction to what it takes to achieve success in college. Our Outdoor Program brochure will be updated shortly in order to provide more information on the four programs offered in 2015. Registration will begin in May 2015 through your GullNet account (and you may also sign up during Orientation 101).

    Note: Spaces in the Outdoor Programs are limited and tend to fill quickly. Registration is conducted on a first come, first served basis. We recommend you register as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment. Programs require an additional fee, which varies based upon program length and destination.




    Orientation 102 is a four-day transition program comprised of residence hall move in, commuter connections, academic and student services programs, getting to know one another, and social fun. All new freshmen students (both residential and commuter) are required to attend all orientation programs.

    Please refer to the information you were provided from Housing and Residence Life about your exact move-in time and directions. Please contact the Housing and Residence Life Office at 410-543-6040 if you have specific questions. The cost of the New Student Orientation program is covered by your orientation fee.

    After your new student orientation ends, the campus prepares for all students to return and kicks off a week of welcome back events during the first week of classes. All new and returning students are welcome to attend any and all events hosted by the Welcome Week Committee - this is a great way to connect with your new friends and to make connections with upper-class students. We encourage all new students to attend the Student Activities Fair during Welcome Week. This is a fun and easy opportunity for you to find out what different clubs and organizations are on campus and to get connected.
