June Orientation 2019 Staff

June Orientation (June-O) is a two-day experience that provides an ideal opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with Denison, learn about opportunities that will be available to you, and meet faculty, current students, and some of your first-year peers!

June-O’s main focus is on academic preparation and course registration. You will leave June-O with your class schedule all set and feeling more prepared for a successful start when you return to campus in the fall. Parents and adult family members are welcome and are encouraged to attend our concurrent June-O for Families program (virtual program on Day 1 only).

Why June-O? 

  • Establish a relationship with a mentor team consisting of a faculty member and a current student to ease your transition into college;
  • Learn about the academic policies, procedures, and expectations of Denison, including the General Education program, majors and minors, study abroad opportunities, internships, career connections, and more;
  • Set your fall schedule!
  • Determine advanced placement credit, transfer credit, and math and foreign language enrollment levels;
  • Meet your fellow classmates so you see familiar faces when you come to campus in the fall.

All incoming domestic first-year students will register for one of our six sessions of June-O. Students must be available for both days of their session as they will be working with a faculty advisor and peer advisor on advising and course registration throughout that time. International students still residing in their native country will register for one of our 6 Virtual June-O for Students Coming from Abroad sessions.

June-O 2022 Session Dates

  • Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15, 2022
  • Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18, 2022
  • Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22 2022
  • Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 2022

While we encourage all students to attend a June-O session hosted on campus, we also offer virtual sessions:

  • Wednesday, June 8 and Thursday, June 9
  • Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12

Registration for June-O is available through your Admitted Student Portal at connect.denison.edu

Please note that both on campus and virtual sessions are two days long. Students must be available for both days of their session, as they will be working with a Faculty Advisor and Student Advisor on course registration throughout both days. Students participating in an on-campus session must stay on campus overnight in our residence halls as part of the program. All times for virtual sessions are in Eastern Time.

Students have an equal opportunity to choose classes regardless of session. Attending an earlier session does not put students at an advantage for course registration.

Denison is committed to providing access for all people with disabilities and will provide accommodations if notified in advance. Students participating in a virtual session who do not have access to a computer or high-speed internet should contact the Office of First-Year Experience at firstyear@denison.edu.

Students Coming From Abroad

In order to provide our new students coming from abroad a similar June-O experience, we will hold 6 virtual June-O for Students Coming from Abroad sessions on the dates listed above via Zoom. Students will be paired with a faculty and student advisor as they are during our regular June-O programs. All students coming from abroad must register for one of these 6 sessions, and they are free of charge.

Fees (On-campus sessions only)

The fee for a student to participate in an on-campus session is $250.00. This fee covers the cost of all food, lodging, linens, and orientation materials. Each adult family member participant is an additional $30.00. Adult family members wishing to stay in a university residence hall may do so for $50.00 per person, or $75.00 for a pair of adults sharing the same room. Student participants are required to stay overnight in a residence hall as part of their program.

Students who are part of the Questbridge or Denison-Columbus Alliance programs, as well as students with eligible financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid, will have all fees waived.
