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 before coming to FOCUS. We can’t wait to meet you at FOCUS!
FOCUS New Student Orientation helps new students begin their transition to life at Valpo. FOCUS is required of all new students and is highly recommended for parents/guardians of first-year students.
