Our Master’s in Higher Education Leadership (MHEL) students may come to campus early to start their internship or graduate assistantship, but we find it is helpful to become familiar with the campus in an academic context—who are your professors, what does coursework look like, what are the academic resources available?

New Student Orientation will be held on Saturday, August 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on-campus. This will be held in the Maney Room in Coxe Hall.
