During this session, students will be able to hear about the various offices on campus that will impact their college career! We will have a showcase of our Student Affairs programs that will provide students with the knowledge of what activities, programs and experiences we provide for them to get involved on campus! Students will also meet with an Orientation Team Leader and have the opportunity to ask them questions about student life.
Starting in the Summer or Fall? The Swoopapalooza program consists of two days of activities for students starting in the summer and fall. The first day consists of meeting with your Orientation Team Leader (OTLs - The Swoop Squad), meeting fellow incoming Osprey students, learning about UNF's traditions and history, athletics and recreation, and housing. You will have an opportunity to tour the residential properties at the conclusion of the first day. The second day is filled with exciting activities such as, academic advising, course registration, participating in workshop sessions and the student affairs showcase.

Many of the programs are for students and parents to attend together. However, there will be some activities that are just for students (academic advising and course registration is a student-only activity). During the time of the student-only programs there will be a separate Parents Session. See the Parents Orientation Website.It is MANDATORY that students attend all of the functions of the orientation program however, it is not mandatory that the parents attend.
