June Orientation (June-O) is a two-day experience where you will familiarize yourself with Denison, learn about opportunities and campus resources, and meet faculty, current students, and your first-year peers!

All new Denisonians will attend both June-O and Aug-O. You will leave June-O with your fall class schedule and will feel more prepared for a successful start when you return to campus in the fall. Parents and adult family members are encouraged to attend our concurrent June-O for Families program.

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 (GE) program, and majors and minors.
  • Set your fall course schedule!
  • 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 five June-O sessions (4 on-campus, 1 virtual). Students must be available for both days of their session as they will be working with a faculty advisor and orientation leader on advising and course registration throughout that time. International students still residing in their native country will register for a Virtual June-O for Students Coming from Abroad session.
