January Orientation

We are delighted that you are joining Malone University! We look forward to welcoming you on Sunday, January 6.

Please note the following afternoon schedule, which is intended to help new and transferring students experience a smooth transition to Malone. During our informational meeting, we will provide complimentary desserts and beverages to welcome you to our community. If you are planning to attend, and you have additional family members or friends who will be accompanying you, please be sure to RSVP to panderson@malone.edu or by calling 330-471-8273 by January 4 so that we know how much to prepare. 

Our orientation will feature dialogue concerning academic issues and residence life. Many important questions will be answered during this time, and you will also receive your student identification card.
