Welcome to the 2017 Southwestern University New Student and Transfer Student Orientation web site. We’re working hard to make sure that Orientation will provide you a successful transition to the Southwestern community.  We have lots of activities, programs, and events to help you meet fellow students, faculty, and staff members of the SU community. 

This site includes the schedule for New Student and Transfer Student Orientation.  Also, you can find information about move-in day, what you need to have done before you get to campus, and links to helpful information.  If you have any questions, please call the Office of Student Activities at (512) 863-1345 or email me at We look forward to seeing you soon!
