New Student Transition

Going to college for the first time or transferring to a new college is a challenging process—a process that often comes with many emotions. Emmanuel College provides new students plenty of resources to adjust during this transition.

Orientation

The Emmanuel Orientation program is designed to make the transition to Emmanuel as seamless as possible. This comprehensive program includes course selection, academic advising, educational sessions and a chance to meet your classmates. It will also provide you with the information you will need to become an active, successful and contributing member of the Emmanuel College community.

FYTC

The First Year Team Challenge online course positions first year students to succeed academically and socially during their first year and beyond at Emmanuel. This interactive online course offers necessary information and tools for a successful beginning to the first-year college experience and provides them an opportunity to reflect on their goals over the coming years.

Student Involvement Expo

Receive information about opportunities to get involved with campus life and begin your career as a student leader at Emmanuel. Sponsored by the Office of Student Activities and the Student Government Association, this expo showcases the many clubs, organizations and areas of involvement on the Emmanuel College campus.

Take48 Retreat

Each semester, new students have the opportunity to join the Campus Ministry staff to take a weekend away from campus to reflect on the Take48 Retreat. Through presentations and discussion, songs, prayer and fun activities, students have the opportunity to explore more deeply where they've come from, where they are now and where they are going.
