Winter Orientation

Welcome to Winter Orientation 2017


We’ve designed a great program of activities, informational sessions, interactions and more that we believe will help you make an excellent transition to John Brown University, whether you're a new freshman or a transfer student. A tentative schedule is below, to give you a preview of the terrific events coming your way, plus some helpful information. When you arrive, we’ll provide you with a final schedule (to be used during Orientation) and specific information to get you started on your road to college success here at JBU!

Plan to arrive on campus between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Monday, January 9, 2017 for Orientation Check-In, located in Simmons Great Hall (See MAP). Once you arrive, the Orientation staff will be on hand to give you your room key (for those living on campus), orientation guide, and registration packet plus help you find your way. From there, you can go directly to your residence hall where residence life staff will assist you. If you have questions about your residence hall assignment, contact your Admissions counselor or the Residence Life Office (479-524-7229).

We'll keep you busy and active, learning about JBU, laughing, playing, and getting acquainted throughout Orientation; so don't schedule anything else during this time. For those of you worried about finding time to set up your room, notice that we’ve allowed time on Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

Plan now to be a part of all of the Orientation’ll be glad you did! We cannot wait for you to arrive!
