Rush University orientation is a one-day program designed to help students learn about important services provided by university offices. Note that your college and/or program may be holding additional orientation days. Your attendance is mandatory at both the university orientation as well as your college and/or program orientation.
Students in Rush Medical College and the College of Nursing’s DNP Specialty programs do not participate in university orientation. These programs organize separate orientation events to introduce their students to university services.

University orientation begins with a welcome from university leadership followed by an introduction to many of the services and departments with which you will interact during your time at Rush. In the afternoon, you will participate in an orientation fair where you will have the opportunity to visit with various offices and complete tasks such as registering for a parking pass, getting additional information on student health insurance, and taking a campus tour. The attire for the day is informal, so please dress comfortably.
