Tell Your Friends! 


Welcome to Mercyhurst North East! We are thrilled that you’ve chosen to pursue your academic career with us.  One of the required steps in the enrollment process is New Student Orientation.  This required program provides an opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with the North East campus and resources as well as meet faculty in your program of study and fellow classmates before the fall semester begins on Wednesday, August 23, 2018!

New Student Orientation Sessions
Students are only required to attend ONE orientation session.  Read below for more information about the sessions before you RSVP.

Express Session
Express orientation sessions have an abbreviated program and are designed to fit the needs of our adult and transfer students.  If you have already attended MNE or another college or are an adult student, the Express session may be the ideal choice for you.  Complimentary snacks and refreshments are provided.

  • Friday, August 17
    • Check-in: 9:15-9:50 a.m., Michele & Tom Ridge Health & Safety Building (Ridge Library)
    • Program runs from 10 a.m.-noon

Traditional Session
Traditional orientation sessions offer a more traditional experience on campus.  Along with the information covered at the Express sessions, the Traditional sessions include tours of campus and on-campus housing, complimentary lunch for you and two guests in the dining hall, and the opportunity to explore local business vendors.  A Traditional session is the ideal choice for a student just graduating from high school, a student who intends to live on campus, and/or a student-athlete. Traditional sessions are also a good choice for any out of town students.  Complimentary snacks and refreshments are provided along with lunch.
