Transfer students may attend a spring-summer Orientation day OR they may attend an optional Transfer Day rather than Orientation. Transfer Days are administered by the ESU Transfer Center, Zimbar-Liljenstein Hall, 570-422-2800. To register for a Transfer Day, visit www.esu.edu/transferday.
Parents are strongly encouraged, however not mandated, to participate in orientation. We have heard from past parent orientation participants that our information on how to parent a university student has been a useful resource!
We encourage you to register for and attend the earliest session possible! It will ease your mind knowing that everything is in order and that you are fully prepared to begin your journey at ESU. The earlier you respond to our invitation, the more likely it is that you will receive your desired date.
Be sure to continue to check your ‘MyESU Portal’ for important ESU information. More orientation information may be found at: esu.edu/orientation/.
We look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact: ESU Orientation Programs, (570) 422-2862.
