What a Feeling! Building Confidence with Online Orientation
Florida Gulf Coast University
During this NODA Regional Conference, online orientation was shown to provide the best onboarding experiences for students and their families.
Recognizing the fatigue students experience after attending a two-day orientation event, it was time to focus on the total onboarding experience. Tabitha Dawes, Director of Eagle View Orientation and Family Programs at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), asked a fundamental question:
If students leave orientation with 10% of what you said and 100% of how you made them feel, how could students come to campus more prepared with better questions?
