Welcome to Hilbert College!

It's time to become a Hilbert Hawk!! New Student Orientation is the first step in your official journey with Hilbert College. Our one-day, intentional, interactive program will provide students and support systems a snapshot of the Hilbert experience, provide you need-to-know information and assist with your completing the processes involved in enrolling at Hilbert College. 

New Student Orientation will be a COVID-friendly event. Each session will have a maximum of 50 students per session. Each student can bring two support systems with them as well if they choose. 

Student Schedule:

Students will spend the morning engaging with faculty and academic affairs staff to learn about the educational experience at Hilbert. This includes reviewing your class schedule, learning about services like tutoring, career development and service learning and begin creating meaningful relationships with faculty in your academic division. The afternoon will be spent with your student engagement team learning all about the co-curricular experience!

Parent/ Support System Schedule:

Support systems will spend the morning learning from key offices like Student Life, Campus Safety and Counseling/Health/ Wellness. Support systems will also have the opportunity to meet privately with offices including financial aid, admissions and accessibility services to finalize administrative processes. Let's not forget dedicated time at our bookstore. After lunch, support systems will engage with the academic affairs staff and faculty on academic expectations, resources and opportunities. 

Both programs will end with specialized sessions including tours of college housing, meet and greets with coaches and extended hours with the campus bookstore. 

The official schedule will be made available to attendees around July 1st. 

Hilbert College plans to have registration open on May 3rd! New Students can find the registration forms in their student portals after this date! Don't know what this means? No worries! We'll email you once you are deposited for Fall 2021!
