Welcome to Neumann University! We are delighted to have you with us and excited to welcome you into the Neumann University Community. University staff is here to assist you as you begin your journey at Neumann University. We want to ensure that you have a smooth transition to Neumann so that in December you won’t consider yourself a transfer student, but a successful Neumann Knight! Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Activities with any further questions or concerns. You may reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You must complete the Online Orientation. All new transfer students are required to complete this by August 25, 2014. An email will be sent to you with the link.
As a formal welcome, we want to invite you to join us on campus for Transfer Student Semester Kick-Off on Sunday, August 30 from 9:00am until 1pm. You will check in at the Atrium, Mirenda Center for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development. This half day event will provide you with a rich experience which includes meeting faculty and staff, visiting key locations on campus, and the opportunity to ask questions unique to your circumstance.
If you plan to attend Orientation on Friday, August 28, please send an email RSVP to email@example.com. It will help us plan the day and ensure enough giveaways for the group.
If you have not registered for classes, transfer students with more than 15 credits should contact their specific academic program to register.

If you have any questions regarding the day, please do not hesitate to contact us at 610.558.5619 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Are there a decent amount of activities or events that happen on campus daily basis?
A: Yes! The fall semester will be filled with over 50 programs and that is just a short list from the programming board, SGA and the Office of Student Activities. There are multiple athletic events, intramurals, resident student programming, commuter student programming, and co-curricular programming that will be taking place.
Q: In August, do you have to come for every part of the new student orientation?
A: No, in fact the only thing you need to do is the online introduction to Neumann (information for this will be emailed soon). There will be a brief transfer kickoff event on Sunday, August 30 at 9:00am during new student orientation. This in-person event is open to all, but we know that everyone is different and has varied levels of need/interest/involvement. You are welcome to attend any session at Orientation. Whether you chose to just do the online introduction, or attend every session, know that I am a resource for you!
Q: Will there a campus tour for new transfer students?
A: Yes, on Sunday, August 30 during Transfer Kickoff, there will be a tour.
