First-Year Student Orientation

Congrats new Tar Heels, and welcome to Carolina!

Attending New Student Orientation will allow you to get a more concrete feel for the campus community, learn about campus resources, meet with your academic advisor, connect with faculty and current students, including your Orientation Leader (OL), and learn what it means to be a Tar Heel.

All parents and family members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend Parent/Family Orientation which runs concurrently with New Student Orientation. Attending Parent/Family Orientation will help you learn how to support your Carolina student to be successful in college, gain insight about campus services, discover how to become involved in the Carolina family, and provide an opportunity for you to meet faculty, administrators, staff and current students. Reservations for Parent/Family Orientation should be completed at the same time students complete New Student Orientation Reservations.
