A note about BeSU 2020

We are excited to connect with you on our campus, but your wellness is a priority. As we’ve adapted to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve had to reinvent the exciting first-year student events we typically host on campus in the summer. As we plan to reopen campus in the fall, we will update you with any additional changes to the schedule.

BeSU Events

beSU Orientation: Live and online!

Sign up for one of the virtual orientation dates by July 1, and we’ll waive your $100 enrollment deposit and pay for your first year of parking.

Join us live and online from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Connect with members of our advising, financial aid and residence life teams, as well as connect with other first-year students. Our academic advisors will be reaching out to you individually to schedule virtual advising appointments to select your fall classes.

Spalding CONNECT

TBD 

Please note: Typically, CONNECT takes place on campus in July. We are assessing the situation and looking at options for incorporating this experience into your welcome to campus in the fall. We will be in touch with any updates to the schedule. 

CONNECT, a required component for all conditionally admitted students, provides you with a jump-start to the beginning of the school year. This experience will give you the opportunity to learn about the requirements of your conditional admission, meet your success coach for the year and meet new and current Spalding students.
