Orientation activities for new and transfer students at the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) will be held next week on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix and the Orville E. Kean Campus on St. Thomas.
Student orientation, which includes a range of informational, immersive and interactive activities, is mandatory for all newly admitted students and helps to ensure that students are equipped with the tools they need to have a successful transition to their academic careers at UVI.
On the Sheen campus, activities on Tuesday, Aug. 9, begin with Check-In at the Northwest Wing Great Hall at 8:15 a.m., followed by a campus tour, resource presentations, lunch at UVI Trellis, and a Residence Life Open House/Parent Session. “It’s All Academics Dean’s Talk,” an opportunity for students to connect with the school deans and learn about each curriculum; student advisement and registration; and the New Student Convocation and Buccaneer Welcome are slated for Wednesday, Aug. 10, beginning at 11 a.m. Students at both campuses are invited to wear a white top paired with black or blue bottoms for the ceremonial Student Convocation events.
Dr. Camille McKayle, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs encourages the new students to take full advantage of the resources available during Orientation such as the various Student Affairs offices, including the Dean's Office, Counseling and Career Services, Residence Life, Student Life, and Health Services.
