In-Person Orientation - Students who started in Fall 2020

Due to the interruption of COVID – 19, students were unable to participate in a face-to-face orientation programs. Therefore, Student Life is inviting the incoming class of 2020 to participate in a unique program that will assist students in knowing the campus more intimately, not just from a virtual screen, and resocialize students to ensure success as we return to campus this September. 

We are excited to officially welcome you to the QCC campus and community; because you were unable to be on campus throughout your first year we are offering you a unique orientation experience. At Orientation you will spend the day meeting other members who started at QCC in the Fall of 2020, current QCC students, and many community members who are resources for you to be successful.

Please fill out the Incoming Class of 2020 Orientation Form.
