Summer 2020 Orientation Recap
Over the summer, students were invited to partake in our 8-week online orientation program. The online orientation program provided a foundation where new students learned about Iona’s history, mission, and resources to support a successful transition to the college. The course allowed for students to build relationships with professional staff, student leaders, and other new students. Students received an online virtual textbook which help prepared them for Gael Nation! The orientation program also coordinated virtual activities so students can engage outside the classroom setting. Some programs that were offered were virtual escape the rooms, online yoga classes, mindfulness & meditation, bingo and more! Students most recently completed an in-class cohort meeting where they met with their fellow peers, orientation leaders as well as their instructor. We look forward to welcoming our newest members of the class of 2025!
Missed Summer Orientation or Need a Recap?
Our orientation experience allows students and their families to connect with faculty, staff, students and the orientation team. By participating in the orientation experience, students have a connection prior to stepping foot on campus. Students learn about all the resources Iona has to offer and what it means to be a part of Gael Nation!
Our Orientation Staff
Here at Iona, our orientation staff is made up of four professional orientation coordinators as well as well as a group of Orientation Leaders.
Our four orientation coordinators help manage the day to day operations of Orientation. Our coordinators are there to assist and aid families through the registration process, answer any questions and guide families in the right direction.
