This project is an online orientation program that was made as an alternative form of orientation for students who can’t attend a hosted on campus Student Orientation, Advising and Registration event at Minnesota State University Moorhead. The program was created to provide students with knowledge or the resources and support services available to them, a stronger connection and sense of belonging to the campus community, and a more successful transition into college life. If the program is able to provide students these essential items, the goal is that student retention and persistence at the university will improve.
