By the end of the two-day orientation, you’ll know your way around campus, have chosen your classes for the fall 2020 semester, and have met a number of new friends! Get ready to become a Hound!

Congratulations on joining the Assumption University community as members of the Class of 2024! We look forward to welcoming you one of our upcoming Compass Orientation sessions this July and to begin your college career this fall. We know you will have plenty of questions about what needs to be done and who to contact.)
The following pages contain much of the information you will need, along with contact information if you have additional questions. At any time, please do not hesitate to email us, but please indicate “Parent/Guardian – 2024” or “Student – 2024” in the subject line with any questions you may have. Your email will be forwarded to the appropriate department and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

COVID 19 has certainly impacted all of our lives and we hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this difficult time. All of us at Assumption are preparing for your arrival on campus in the coming months particularly regarding your Orientation to the classroom and campus life.  As such, we have an update on our July Orientation Program. You may know that the Governor of Massachusetts has extended the stay at home order to help curve the spread of the coronavirus. As a result, we have made the decision to move our Compass Orientation from an in-person experience to a virtual one. 

Compass Orientation remains a critical aspect of your transition to Assumption.  We will provide curricular and co-curricular programming that will allow you to meet faculty, select course offerings, meeting upper-class student orientation leaders and interact with your new classmates. Family orientation will also be provided on your same session day.

Thank you for choosing Assumption University! We look forward to the many contributions you will make not only to the University community but to society, upon graduation. It is here, that you will learn to “Light the Way” for others to follow.
