Extended Orientation is a program that HOPE does for incoming freshman to The College. It takes place during the first 2 weeks of school and there are 2 parts to it. The first part of extended orientation is a general overview of healthy habits for college life. Some of the topics include stress reduction, healthy eating and sleeping, alcohol and drug abuse, and maintaining healthy relationships. We strive to educate every freshman on helpful tools for their transition to college life and ways to stay healthy during this stressful time. The first program opens a conversation to hopefully help them as they begin college life.
For the second part of Extended Orientation, HOPE teams up with Someone You Know to present a program on sexual assault in college. This is an open discussion about where the line of sexual assault is and how to keep yourself safe. This is also a discussion about bystander intervention and ways to reduce sexual assault on our college campus.
We encourage freshman who have attended this program to give feedback on their experience, including things that went well and constructive critiques for improvement.
To give feedback to any program or to ask HOPE any questions, please submit them here.
