Colleges with the Best Freshman Orientations

Here are some schools that understand the importance of starting your first year right!

Starting your freshman year can be intimidating, but college orientations make the leap a little easier.

Orientations are usually filled with standard procedures for first-year enrollment: getting a student ID card, filling out health information and making your schedule.

But if you do it right, orientation can be your first real look into all of the opportunities--and fun--that lie ahead. 

Many colleges have spiced up their schedules to include fun activities, overnights, shows and competitions. These often continue to run up until the first day of classes to help you stay active on campus and socialize with your new classmates.

We decided to check into some of the best orientations out there, and Campus Explorer had just the information were looking for.

Whether or not your school's orientation makes the cut, make the most out of the opportunity by getting involved with everything it has to offer. You are sure to get your freshman year started in a positive direction!
