Thank you for joining us at New England College. We can’t wait for you to arrive on campus, and work hard to create orientation experiences that aim to connect you to our campus. Preparing students to succeed is what we are all about at NEC!


Summer Orientation – The Pilgrimage

The Pilgrimage is NECs summer orientation program. This year we will be hosting these events in a virtual format using Zoom. We call it the pilgrimage, because a pilgrimage is a journey, often into an unknown place, where a person goes in search of new or expanded meaning about the self, others, nature, or a higher good, through the experience.

Connect with your classmates, your campus, and your academics and start your Pilgrimage. We have separate events for students and families with information geared to each group. Register by clicking on the date you can attend.


Student Sessions

The student sessions will cover the following topics and more: preparing for first day, campus with COVID information, technology information, diversity and inclusion, advising, meeting Faculty, meeting Peer Leaders, and Q&A.

 

Family Sessions

The family sessions will cover the following topics and more: Life in the times of Covid-19, wellness paperwork, Student Financial Services Information, how we build partnerships, understanding campus code of conduct, diversity and inclusion, campus safety, residential life, student engagement, academic support services, and Q&A.

Once you are registered, all that’s left to do is attend! You will be emailed Zoom links a few days before the event.

Please check back here for additional virtual sessions held by specific offices in July.

All students wishing to partake in the Virtual Pilgrimage must be a deposited student. If you are not a deposited student, please call the Office of Admission at 603.428.2223.
