Orientation in 5 words: Realization that Chapman is Home
Fun fact: 11 is my favorite number b/c I’m born on November 11th
Favorite Orientation memory: As a new student I loved when I entered a zoom meeting with my OL’s blasting throwback songs super loudly. I quickly figured out that Orientation would not just be an informative session but an enjoyable week where I get to meet mentors and people in my major that I will see on a daily basis in my classes. The ice breakers were super fun too because no one is judgmental and you can freely express yourself and talk about yourself. I truly felt like I was starting a new chapter in my life during orientation.
