A Tradition of Excellence
We are honored to be part of your academic journey and invite you to consider joining our tradition of:
- Being Someone: developing your confidence and leadership.
- Going Somewhere: establishing connections to the greater community and globally while modeling the qualities of strong character; and
- Seeking Excellence: acquiring the abilities, skills and knowledge required for the lifelong pursuit of ongoing academic, occupational and personal growth.
This freshmen hub is the virtual version of our New Student Orientation, the Griffin Greet, our annual introduction to our campus. We hope this fun and informative freshmen hub will help ensure a smooth transition from middle school to early college!
