new student orientation at Larimer Campus

Spring 2015 New Student Orientation

January 13 and 15, 2015


Attending orientation is an expectation for all incoming FRCC students, and we have a great set of programs to support your transition to our campus. In addition to learning a ton about FRCC, we also provide free coffee and refreshments at each session, along with opportunities for great giveaways and prizes!

For students starting in the spring 2015 semester, we have three program options:

  • Tuesday, January 13 - 4:00pm – 7:00pm
  • Thursday, January 15 - 9:00am – 12:00pm
  • Thursday, January 15 - 2:00pm – 5:00pm

Over the course of New Student Orientation, you will be able to:

  • Learn about what is expected of you as an FRCC student, inside and outside the classroom
  • Meet faculty, staff, and fellow students in a fun and relaxed environment
  • Participate in workshops on college success and resources on campus
  • Participate in a campus tour (if you haven't done so already)

All orientation sessions are held at the Larimer Campus and begin in the Longs Peak Student Center. Parking is free on campus. See Map.

Veterans Student Briefing

The Veterans Services department and Student Life are excited about serving you and aiding in your transition from the military to college. At this briefing, you will be welcomed by campus leadership, learn about student engagement/leadership opportunities, get connected to community resources that serve veterans, learn more about VA education benefits, and be taught strategies that will help you transition from your branch of service and into the classroom. Veterans are permitted to bring their families to the event, but space is limited. Students who attend the Veterans Student Briefing are not expected to attend the general New Student Orientation sessions, but are welcome to attend. Sign-Up Coming Soon!

Orientation for Family

We know your support system is important to you and it's important to us too. We even have a special workshop for parents, family members, and other guests to help them support you throughout your college experience. Family members are welcome at all orientation sessions.

High School Students

High school students participating in the Campus Select program are strongly encouraged to participate in New Student Orientation. The Career Pathways program will host a separate orientation where students will receive details in their welcome folders. High school students can contact Beth Montgomery at with questions.

Orientation for Online Students

Students who are going to take their first online course at FRCC are required to complete the orientation for online classes, preferably by the first day of the semester, but within the first week of course(s) at the latest. This program is expected for students who are all-online, and is also a good option if none of the in-person orientation sessions work for you. Learn more.
