Student Involvement Staff with the assistance of student leaders and members of the campus community designs and facilitates the Fall and Winter Orientation Programs. Orientation is the University's opportunity to welcome new students, to help ease their transition and serves as a sounding board and support system for all new students. Each new student is assigned to a Peer Group which is supported throughout the 1st Semester by a volunteer Peer Leader. The objective is to educate and integrate new students in a non- threatening way into the academic and co-curricular life of the College at Rindge. The Peer Group corresponds directly with a new student’s Freshman Seminar Class and advised by a member of the Faculty. Workshops, speakers and social events are developed to promote active participation among new students.
