XULA New Student Orientation


New first-year students who are attending Xavier University of Louisiana in the spring semester will attend a two-part New Student Orientation program.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our students and their families are of the utmost importance. The Division of Student Affairs has created an online experience that will replace a portion of our on-campus orientations. During Move-In Weekend, we are hopeful that you will kick-off your first semester at Orientation Part Two.

Parents and Family Orientation

Each student is unique and we recognize that! This is why Orientation was designed to provide an in-depth look at the experiences we provide to those joining the Xavier Family. We want to ensure that all new students and their parents begin to connect to the intellectual, cultural, and social facets of campus life. As you make connections with our faculty, staff, and current students, you will find our campus is deeply committed to the achievement and academic success. We are incredibly humbled you have invited Xavier to become part of your family. We are confident that when you complete your XULA Orientation, you will leave ready to support your student as they accomplish great things on campus and make the most of their college experience.
