Congratulations and welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas College! We’re delighted to have you on board.

New Student Orientation Summer 2021

We’ve prepared an exciting, information-rich orientation program to prepare you for your first semester at STAC.

New Student Orientation (NSO) - Summer Program - 2021

NSO is a half-day AM or PM orientation program that will take place in person where you will learn what to expect at STAC and how to use all the resources available to you as a new Spartan.

The Half Day Program will cover topics such as Student Resources, Meeting other New Students, Registration, and more!

For the dates listed below, we will have a morning session and an afternoon session.

The Morning Session will take place from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm (Check-In at 8:30 AM)
The Afternoon Session will take place from 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm (Check-In at 1:30 PM)

COVID-19 safety protocols must be followed for a safe campus visit during orientation:

  • All attendees must wear a mask (unless eating)
  • Maintain 6 ft social distancing
  • Bring your COVID-19 vaccination card if you have one

What you need to know before you arrive:

Set Up Your STAC.EDU Email Account

  • You now have a stac.edu email address!
  • Please set this up as soon as possible since all future communications from STAC will be sent to your stac.edu email.
  • Here are detailed instructions on how to access your stac.edu email account.

TITLE IX Module Training

You will receive an email to your stac.edu email inviting you to Everfi.

  • This is a module system that is used to have our incoming students learn and understand important information regarding Alcohol Awareness and Title IX Training.
  • These training modules are mandatory for you to attend STAC.
  • Please complete the Title IX Module BEFORE you attend in-person orientation.
  • If you do not complete it BEFORE you attend orientation, you will have to complete it on campus before you enter the New Student Orientation session.

If you have questions about Title IX, please reach out to your assigned Orientation Leader.

We look forward to welcoming you as a Spartan to the STAC Family!

*IMPORTANT - The summer orientation program is limited to student participation only. We will be holding an online orientation specifically for parents and family.
