Orientation #UPJ2022

Commitment to Real World Action:

Get ready. Get involved. Make a difference. Embrace and enjoy your world.

 

Welcome, Class of 2022!

We are already working to prepare for your arrival in the fall, and we can't wait to meet you!  By choosing to pursue your education at Pitt-Johnstown, you have chosen well!

During orientation, you will work closely with members of the Student Affairs team to engage with your fellow students and the campus, to begin your successful transition into collegiate life, and start you on your path to real world readiness. We also want you to have fun, which is why we have included several opportunities to kick back and have a good time!
