By the end of the two-day orientation, you’ll know your way around campus, have chosen your classes for the fall 2021 semester, and have met a number of new friends! Are you ready to become a Hound?

Congratulations on joining the Assumption University community as members of the Class of 2025! We look forward to welcoming you at one of our upcoming COMPASS Orientation sessions this June and as you begin your university career this fall. 

We know you will have plenty of questions about what needs to be done and who to contact. he 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 – 2025” or “Student – 2025” 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.

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

We also want to provide you with opportunities to connect with each other and the faculty and staff here at Assumption in person. One such opportunity is attending an upcoming, in-person Hound Day on campus. The purpose of Hound Days is to provide members of the Class of 2025 an opportunity to visit campus in person, meet some fellow classmates and orientation leaders, learn about  the many helpful services available to you as an Assumption student, and to have some fun! 

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.
