Our Fall 2020 semester starts with online classes on September 1. We do expect and encourage our students to arrive on campus as early as possible, starting from August 26th, to take advantage of the additional academic and social activities on our always-buzzing campus from that date already. Nevertheless, individual arrivals until October 26th will remain possible.
In any case, we have planned a series of online and on-site events that will introduce you to your academic program, academic advisors, faculty members, fellow students, residential college, campus life, and life off-campus.
Orientation Week is a beloved tradition here at Jacobs university where we welcome our new students to our campus and our community. This year some of our students won’t be able to join us as soon as we would all like because of COVID-19. In order for no one to miss out or be left behind we have created The Freshie Journey!
The Freshie Journey is designed to assist you, new students, to settle into university life from near and far. With the help of our peer counselors and GSA mentors, your transition will be informative, fun, and definitely unforgettable.
We are looking forward to seeing you on campus!
