Fall Orientation 2017

Fall Orientation will be held Saturday, August 19 - 22, 2017.

As a new student, your first priority will be to get comfortable at Coker College. It is our job to provide you with everything you need to make a smooth and easy transition. We do this by organizing a first-class orientation program that you’ll find fun as well as informative. All students who are new to Coker College must attend the Fall Orientation program. To help meet the unique needs of new first-year and transfer students, we have designed a program that will assist you in your transition to campus.

All new students will begin orientation on Saturday, August 19, 2017.

Residential Students

Students staying in the residence halls may check-in from 8:00am – 1:00pm in the DeLoach Center. During this process you will receive your orientation packet, tie up loose ends with student accounts or the financial aid office, have your ID made, and receive your residence hall key. Afterwards, you will proceed to the residence halls to be welcomed by our staff as they help you unload and move into your residence hall room. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:30am, and the Welcome Session for you and your parents will begin at 2:00pm in the DeLoach Center.

Commuter Students

Students planning to commute may check-in from 12:00pm – 1:00pm in the DeLoach Center. The Welcome Session for you and your parents will begin at 2:00pm in the DeLoach Center. Be sure to join us at 1:00pm for the Getting Involved in Campus Life session!

Although a few sessions during Orientation are optional, most programs are required! Therefore, we encourage you to read over the schedule carefully. If you have any questions, contact the Student Experience Office at (843) 383-8035.

Parents of New Students

For parents who accompany their new student to check-in and move-in, the Student Experience Office invites you to stay for an afternoon of your own Parent Orientation.  After the 2:00 Welcome Session, you will have the opportunity to meet key staff here at Coker, learn how to support your student through this transition, and ask any remaining questions before you leave campus that evening. Check out your schedule here! (Coming soon)
