ORION is a wilderness exploration program for first-year students. 

Students who are attending the Fall Week session, scheduled August 14 - 18, will be able to drop off items in their fall room assignment before leaving for the trip. Contact the Housing Office in the area where you will be living to schedule an appointment during the specified timeframe. Housing staff will meet you and escort you to your room to drop off items. This is a drop-and-go feature; you will not be able to set up your room. Students are not permitted to stay overnight in University housing on Sunday August 13.
