About this Event

Note: we are pausing registration for our Pre-Orientation programs until we receive further state guidance regarding social-distancing and other measures to keep the Stevens community safe and healthy. We will confirm by July 1st whether Stevens will be able to host our traditional Pre-Orientation programs in August, so stay tuned. If you have already registered for Pre-Orientation and we learn that we are unable to host our programs, you will also receive an update regarding your payment at that time.

Stevens Pre-Orientation 2020

Sunday, August 23 - Wednesday, August 26, 2020

These fun, three-day experiences take place just before Orientation and allow you to move in early, bond with some of your classmates, get comfortable on campus, and explore the exciting sides of New York and New Jersey. Choose from one of our unique program experiences:

Health & Wellness Exploration

This dynamic experience takes advantage of the many opportunities to stay active around Hoboken and New York and help you maintain a sound mind and body while you’re at Stevens.

Outdoor Leadership Challenge

The Great Outdoors is the perfect backdrop to practice team-building, build self-confidence, and develop leadership skills while making new friends.
