New Student Orientation

Whether you are right out of high school or coming to college mid-career or anywhere in between, New Student Orientation will help you understand the Community College and prepare yourself for academic and personal success! New students are assisted in their transition to college through an orientation process comprised of Orientation and Knights Connect.

Knights Connect is held just prior to each semester at each campus and is intended to be a casual and enjoyable start to your first semester.  Knights Connect provides opportunities for you to meet your classmates, become familiar with your designated campus, learn about resources and services to support you while at CCRI, discover opportunities to engage outside the classroom, and meet your faculty.
