What to Expect at Orientation

Our team is so excited to meet you! Below is our schedule so you know what to expect for the day.

  • Check-In (beginning 15 minutes prior to each session)
  • 1st hour: Group Presentation
    • Our admissions staff will talk to the group about general college information, PSEO-specific policies, campus resources, and will give a registration tutorial.
  • 2nd hour and a half: Advising Small Groups & Registration
    • Students will break into small groups of 4-5 and meet with their assigned academic advisors. Advisors will provide students with course recommendations, help them check their Anoka-Ramsey accounts, and show them how they can connect with their advisor through their student email.

We hope that once you leave orientation, you have met your assigned advisor, have a schedule of courses for your next semester, and feel comfortable with your next steps at Anoka-Ramsey.
