Welcome Class of 2020 to Orientation Week

Whether you are packing your own bags for Orientation or preparing to send a family member we wish to give you a warm welcome.

This site is designed to be an easy way to find all the information you will need. For new cadets, you will visit here often to get up-to-date information, schedules, and download materials.  For families, you will get arrival information, a schedule of family events, and the Inside Look, which provides a daily glimpse into life during Orientation.

Whatever brings you here, we wish you smooth sailing during this year's Orientation.
