Orientation 2017

Welcome to Cottey banner


Residence Halls open at 8 a.m.

The mission of Orientation 2017 is to create an atmosphere where students and families feel welcome; to begin building relationships with students, faculty, and staff; and to receive information to assist in your successful transition to the academic, social, and cultural life at Cottey.

You may begin moving into your residence hall at 8 a.m., on Friday, August 18. Orientation check-in begins at 9 a.m. in the Center for the Arts. After 9 a.m., you may start with either residence hall check in or Orientation check in. Sessions for families will be held through Sunday, August 20, concluding after brunch.

You will find the answers to most of your questions regarding Orientation and your life at Cottey in the New Student Newsletter and in the tentative Orientation schedule.
