New Student Orientation

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

We’ve prepared an exciting, information-rich orientation program to prepare you not just for your first semester but your entire college career with us. 

New Student Orientation is a two-part program — “Summer Orientation” and “Spartan Start”

The first part, Summer Orientation
 is a single day orientation program that will take place in a "virtual space" where you and your family will learn what to expect at STAC and how to use all the resources available to you as a new student.

The first part encompasses three components:

  1. The initial orientation program session on any one day listed below that works for you. 
  2. Follow-up supplemental session(s) dedicated to specific student interests such as athletics, residence life, commuter students, clubs, and more!
  3. You will be introduced to one of our Orientation Leaders who will help guide you through your first year at STAC. 

The second part, Spartan Start, takes place during move-in weekend/the first week of the semester. There will be more information forthcoming throughout the summer regarding Spartan Start.

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

*IMPORTANT- You may have received your welcome packet, or you will be receiving it shortly. YOU MUST follow the directions provided to access your stac.edu email account. Throughout this summer, we will solely communicate with our students through the stac.edu email.
