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 College community! We look forward to welcoming you to COMPASS June Orientation at one of the three sessions as well as on Friday, August 28, 2020, for Check-in Day to begin your college career. 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.

In preparation for COMPASS Orientation, the Orientation Leaders and the entire Assumption College community are excited to officially welcome you to campus as Greyhounds! We’ve been hard at work preparing for COMPASS orientation; two days of fun during which you’ll familiarize yourself with campus, meet with an academic advisor and get to know other members of the Class of 2024.

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