Build Belonging with Virtual Orientation
CSSO 2024 | March 12-24 | San Francisco
Student Success Starts with with Early Engagement in Virtual Orientation
Building a sense of belonging is a process. Student services officers are showing new students how to make college connections early in the onboarding process. It all starts with a digital experience in a personalized virtual orientation students complete on their own time.
Given the diversity of today’s new college students, providing an inclusive onboarding experience is still aspirational for many orientation professionals. We want students to feel seen and feel part of a community. At the same time, students expect to be treated like the individuals they are.
Many student services and orientation staff have tried providing student orientation information online through a in a one-size-fits-all video. As a result, completion rates, and subsequent matriculations rates were low. Today, with a comprehensive virtual orientation system intentionally composed to reach disproportionately impacted students, completion and matriculation rates are near 80%. Outcomes are transparent and quantifiable.
