New student orientation

FOCUS New Undergraduate Student Orientation

Valpo students repeatedly share what a positive impact FOCUS has on their start to life at Valpo. It helps them feel more comfortable, learn more about their academic programs, find their way around campus, and discover resources they didn’t even know existed. It is also where new students register for classes, request a roommate, and more! FOCUS is required of all new students and is highly recommended for parents/guardians of first-year students.
We can’t wait to meet you at FOCUS!

January 2022 FOCUS

June 2022 FOCUS

August 2022 FOCUS

We encourage all students to attend June FOCUS as this allows you to have enough time to get ready for your journey at Valparaiso University. We do host an August FOCUS for our incoming students that live more than 500 miles away. More information will be available in the Spring 2022 semester.
