Welcome New Students!

Are you about to become a new student at University of St. Francis? Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance! As a new student at the USF, you are bound to have questions. New Student Orientation is your most effective first step towards getting those questions answered. We are here to help you. You’ll learn inside tips from students, faculty and staff who will serve as your guides during your time at the USF.

You will have many opportunities available to you while at the USF. By the time you leave orientation, you’ll be on you way to becoming a successful USF student.
