Orientation Information

Fish eye view of Orientation

Welcome to Orientation at Fisher!

Saturday, August 30 - Monday, September 1

Fisher's Orientation program is designed to help you make a smooth transition to college. You'll learn about campus life, student activities, academic expectations, campus facilities and support services, and make lots of new friends! Check out the Orientation Schedule.

In short, Orientation is the most significant community-building activity you can take part in at Fisher. Current Fisher students serve as "Orientation Leaders" and are anxious to meet you.

Orientation is required for all new full-time Fisher students, both commuters and residents. It's a fun-filled time for you to become acquainted with the College and to take part in activities with your new classmates, many of whom will become your friends for life.

Fun Fact: I went inside the Green Monster at Fenway Park and I saw Neil Diamond’s signature who sings the famous "Sweet Caroline" during the Red Sox games!
