If you haven’t yet registered for New Student Orientation, register now for Sunday, April 23, 2017. Mitchell Orientation is a 1-day experience for students and their parents/guardians.
What Can I Expect?
Our required New Student Orientation is designed to for you to get acclimated to campus, learn about clubs and campus life, meet the Advising Team and get a sneak peek at your first semester. You’ll meet other future Mariners and hang out with current Mitchell students. We’ll snap a photo for your official Mitchell I.D., you can load up on Mitchell swag, and yes, there’s going to be awesome eats.
We have a great sense of community here. I feel like it's so welcoming and there's always a place for someone.

A few words on fit.
"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.
If you are looking for a college that:
Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual
Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways
Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success
Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience
Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience
Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities
Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences
Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world
Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities
