New Student Orientation is an exciting event for the Marquette community. New Student Orientation includes two days of activities designed to introduce all new students (first-year and transfer) to our academic excellence, vibrant campus life and community involvement that constitute the Marquette tradition.

Now that Orientation has concluded, review some additional resources to support your transition:

Marquette New Student & Family Guide

Be sure to utilize this resource as your one-stop shop for all new student and family information including schedules, maps, handouts, and more. The Marquette Guide will be used throughout SPARK@Home, Orientation, and the 2020 - 2021 academic year!
