Sprog Orientation

For Students




Pirate Training

Attending Sprog Orientation is required for all incoming students. During your day and a half overnight stay, you will have the opportunity to cross off some very important to-do items as you get ready for the Southwestern Experience. Plan on being on campus from 9 a.m. on Day 1 to 5 p.m. on Day 2. After the first day of sessions, you will spend the evening in our residence halls, meet other Pirates, and enjoy the best of Pirate life! Your meals and accommodations are all covered in your orientation fee, collected when you deposited.
