New Student Orientation.The New Student Orientation program facilitates the transition of all new students from high school or other universities to Tennessee Tech. The program provides multiple orientation sessions throughout the year, fall week of welcome, and other programs during a student's first year at the institution. These programs help connect new students to faculty, staff, other students, and student organizations. The philosophy of the Office of Orientation and Student Success is to integrate new students into the university within the first six weeks of their first semester. It is proven that this fosters strong campus relationships and promotes a student's overall personal growth and academic success at Tennessee Tech.
