Winter Orientation begins in January each year, and welcomes new first year and transfer students who are beginning their Marquette career in the spring semester. We recognize the unique background and interests of each student and we provide a program that is personalized to students’ needs.

Beginning in December all transfer and new students will receive an invitation via their Marquette e-mail account to participate in the Winter Orientation program. Having trouble accessing your eMarq account? Visit the IT Services website.

In an effort to provide a personalized experience, students will be able to choose their level of involvement.
