2019 Students in Transition Conference Presentation
University of Tampa
Online Orientation on UT Time (without the turmoil)
It was about time. Facing three times the number of students transitioning since the early 2000’s, the old orientation program dumped information on students in a short amount of time. Orientation attendance was low and the emotional turmoil that comes with change was high. It was time to deliver orientation in a student-centered time zone. Today, orientation is the university’s first Student Affairs hybrid program. This three-part session features an open discussion with Shannon Calega, M.ED., Dir. of Orientation and Family Engagement, University of Tampa; a demonstration of UT’s orientation platform; and plenty of time to answer to your questions.
