Orientation Checklist

Your Orientation Checklist

  • Arrange Your Room
    Connect with your roommate to get things organized in your new residence hall room. Remember that the CATA bus offers free transportation to local stores to buy any last-minute necessities.
  • Set Your Schedule & Familiarize Yourself with Campus
    Review your schedule. Take a look at your class schedule and find each of the buildings where your classes will be held. Be careful not to confuse Arter with Alden and Carr with Carnegie. Plan your week to include sleep, waking up in time for meals, and studying.
  • Stock Up on Supplies & Gear
    The College Bookstore will be open from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 9:00 am – 5:00 pm on Monday and Tuesday so you can stock up on supplies and Allegheny gear.
  • Relax, Relate, Make Some New Friends!
    Make sure you set aside time to unwind and meet some new friends. Visit the Wise Center to get in a good workout, take a walk around campus, hang out in the Campus Center to meet new friends, get to know your residence hall floor members. Make lots of new friends!
