The University of the Virgin Islands is pleased to be hosting a Virtual New and Transfer Student Orientation for the Spring 2021 semester. “Orientation includes sessions to introduce new students to UVI, networking with other students and instructors, virtual campus tours and other initiatives of the University,” said Hedda Finch-Simpson, dean of students on the Albert A. Sheen Campus.  

The St. Thomas Campus hosted a pre-orientation meeting on Dec. 8, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. for new and transfer students. At this meeting, students were introduced to the Virtual New Student Orientation through the Microsoft Teams Platform which has a collection of short videos and assignments for students to complete. “As we innovate to keep all of us safe during this public health crisis and maximize the educational experience, we have created a dynamic and flexible orientation platform to start you on your journey to success,” said Verna Rivers, dean of Student Affairs. “The key is to get connected and stay involved as we navigate the challenges. We are here to support students.”   

On both campuses of the University, orientation activities will continue on Jan. 2 - 10, 2021.
