New Student Orientation
Students find the journey through their college years is not just one experience, one decision, one class, one friend or even one mentor. College is all of that, and more. It is a series of experiences, thoughts, classes, relationships, etc.
When students choose Indiana Tech, their entire experience is built around ONE important concept: the university mission statement. Our mission is to provide learners a professional education; prepare them for active participation, career advancement, and leadership in the global 21st century society; and motivate them toward a life of significance and worth.
As a new student to Indiana Tech, your first moments here will come from New Student Orientation. Whether you are a first-time student or a transfer student to Indiana Tech, you will spend Saturday, Aug. 17, and Sunday, Aug. 18, learning about the Tech student experience, meeting with deans and faculty of your college and program, making connections with other students and getting acclimated for the semesters to come.
