Student advisement, registration, getting connected, resource presentations, special dining events and campus tours are just a few of the activities planned for Orientation Week, the goal of which is to acclimate each new student to college life at UVI.  

“We are looking forward to welcoming new students on each of our campuses,” said UVI Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Camille McKayle.  “Our offices of Student Affairs have really done a great job of mixing just enough informational activities with fun.  The more formal convocation will signify the students’ transition into UVI and our promise of an excellent educational experience.  We are ready for our new students.” More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
