The University of the Virgin Islands will hold Summer Orientation from Wednesday, July 11 to Thursday, July 12, for new students enrolling on both campuses. All newly accepted students are required to participate in orientation activities prior to the start of the semester for academic advising and development of their class schedules. Orientation also includes sessions to introduce new students to UVI, networking with other students and instructors, campus tours, an official welcome from UVI President David Hall and a National Student Exchange meeting.

 New student advisement and registration are scheduled for Wednesday, July 11, on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix and Thursday, July 12, on the St. Thomas Campus.   

“We look forward to welcoming our Buccaneers who have chosen to get a jump start on their academic pursuits,” said Hedda Finch-Simpson, dean of Students on the Sheen Campus.  “As a part of the UVI family, students will be provided with a “uniquely Caribbean” learning experience. Orientation is intended to acquaint students to life on campus to ensure their rapid success socially and academically.”    

“The University is excited to welcome new students to our campuses for Summer 2018,” said Verna Rivers, dean of students on the St. Thomas Campus. “Planned activities will get them ready to be successful academically. Campus tours will inform them of computer lab access, including needed resources like our 24/7 computer labs and our Center for Student Success.”
