Questions about Orientation?
Do parents need to attend Orientation?
Malone University strongly encourages parents to attend the first day of Orientation. We believe it helps new students make a comfortable transition to college, and it also provides parents with valuable information about Malone - including advice on transitions for parents, too!
Is there a charge for attending?
No - there's no charge!
Where is check-in?
Check-in takes place in the Randall Campus Center ("The Barn"). Enter from the stairs in the "silo" right by the Admissions Center. (Find it with our interactive Campus Map.)
Why do I need to check in?
Students will receive their class assignments, mailbox information, and other important materials at this time.
I'm arriving early. Do I still need to check in?
Yes! Again, you'll be receiving important information, such as your class assignments. You'll also need to sign up for particular Orientation activities.
I will be living on campus. When can I move in?
After you have checked in at the Randall Campus Center (The Barn) on August 22, you will check in at the desk in the main lobby of your residence hall and then begin moving into your room.
Will offices at Malone be open during Orientation?
Of course! We are excited for your arrival. Our staffs will be ready and waiting for you in Admissions, the Business Office, Financial Aid, the Bookstore, and the Mail Room.
May we buy textbooks during Orientation?
Of course! The University Bookstore will be open from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
