First Year Student Orientation

Updates from our Office:

The University of South Florida (USF) and the Orientation Office continue to monitor the concerns related to COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are taking the necessary steps to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. For the latest updates on how USF is responding to the coronavirus threat, visit our website.

USF and the Orientation Office will continue to prepare students and families for their transition into the Bulls' community. The Orientation team has made the difficult decision to moveSpring Orientation sessions to a virtual format. More information will be communicated as we navigate this process

Your time here is going to be filled with fun, friendship, challenges, knowledge and success. You’ll gain the skills to make a difference in your area of studies and the community, but you won’t have to do it alone. We’ll be here to help you every step of the way.
