Are you interested in participating in a more in-depth orientation? Register for the July 17–18 session to spend some additional time on campus, stay overnight in a residence hall, and experience what it’s like to be a Tennessee Vol!

This overnight session will include an additional small group meeting lead by upperclassmen, dinner on campus, and more information on how to get involved. By attending, you can expect to leave with newly formed relationships with other incoming transfer students, upper-class students, and staff on campus.
