The weeklong new student Orientation program serves to familiarize new students with the College’s policies and procedures, the Oberlin College community, and the new class of first-year and transfer students.  New students attend welcoming programs, information sessions, and social events.  Placement tests, auditions for Conservatory ensembles, academic advising, and course registration also take place during this week. The offices of the Dean of Students, Dean of Studies, and Dean of the Conservatory plan and evaluate new student orientation.
