Welcome Incoming Students!

Orientation at Brandeis is created by students for students. Orientation is coordinated by a small group of student leaders who work closely with the Director of Orientation and First Year Experience to create, plan and implement Orientation for new students. 

Our vibrant student leaders and friendly staff members will welcome you into the Brandeis community. Our Orientation Leaders (OLs) will serve as guides, resources and mentors to you throughout your first days at Brandeis and beyond. If you are living on campus, you will also meet your Community Advisor (CA), a returning student who lives in your residence hall.

Orientation will provide you with information, resources and relationships that will help ease your transition to life at Brandeis.  The Department of Orientation and First Year Experience will serve as a resource beginning before your arrival and continuing during your official Orientation days and beyond. Along with this department, your OL's, CA, faculty and staff will be here for you whenever you need us.
