A Message to Our Newest HAWKS


Congratulations! Welcome to your new Saint Joseph's University family, and to the Class of 2023. As the student coordinators for this year's Orientation, we are excited to invite you to your first experience as an official HAWK! Over two days in the Summer of 2019, you will be guided by a team of Orientation leaders who are passionate about making your transition an easy and exciting one. As you stay in residence halls and attend interactive sessions with faculty and staff, you will meet future classmates and become familiar with your new home on Hawk Hill.

Your leaders, also known as "Red Shirts," will be with you each step of the way to answer any and all questions you may have through your time at Saint Joseph's. Your Orientation experience will continue in August when you come back to campus and reunite with your groups. As a new student, you will have the opportunity to come to campus a few days earlier than your fellow Hawks to give you the chance to settle in, meet with your advisors, and prepare for the academic year ahead. We have already begun to prepare for your arrival in June and the Red Shirts are eager to meet you all! This year's Orientation will be an important first step in your venture! We cannot wait to welcome you into the Saint Joseph's community!
