Orientation

Fall 2019 Orientation in the Gym

Orientation provides a solid learning community for social networking, orientation to college life, and support for a successful transition. The Student Success Center and Orientation Staff work hand in hand to provide a well-rounded structure of support for student success. IAIA prides itself on helping its students transition into college life by offering workshops that give students the opportunity to adjust to IAIA, meet other students, and get comfortable with the IAIA Community.

Education is a journey, and it begins with a first step. Along this educational journey will be excitement, risk-taking, challenges, and opportunities. At IAIA, staff and faculty see the success of our students as our primary purpose. Once students apply to IAIA, they begin their journey with us. Upon acceptance, students begin to receive our materials about campus housing, financial aid, scholarship opportunities, and academic program information. Orientation is mandatory for all New Freshmen.

“IAIA orientation helped me to open up and get out of my shell. I feel more comfortable talking with professors and learning more about my academic path and how to engage with others and ask for help when needed. One the best parts of orientation for me was that it was interactive—and fun too!”
