Orientation: Welcome to Iona!

The Iona orientation program is filled with engaging activities designed to introduce you to your classmates, to encourage team building and to give you opportunities to work with student orientation team leaders. You'll learn about the opportunities you'll have for research, internships, service learning and study abroad. You'll be introduced to Iona's mission and be made aware of the College services available to you.

All incoming students must take part in one of the orientation sessions to best prepare you for the year ahead.

Meet your Orientation Leaders & Staff.

Iona looks forward to welcoming all our newest Gaels at New Student and Family Orientation! The safety and well-being of our students has always been Iona’s top priority. As such, we will be offering a robust online Orientation program beginning in June. The New Student Orientation program will launch in a virtual platform on the first date of your scheduled Orientation session. For example, if you registered for Orientation Session 1 (June 8 – 9) there will be an online session on June 8. All incoming students will be receiving detailed information about the exciting Orientation program we’ve planned. The College will continue to monitor conditions related to COVID-19 and we look forward to bringing new students together in person as soon as it is safe to do so.
