Orientation Week will be occurring on September 3,4,9 & 10, 2023, following residence move-in on September 2, 2023.
For more information, please continue reading below. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the Commerce Executive on Orientation at email@example.com.
We look forward to meeting you in September!

Q: Do you offer a Fee Waiver Program for Orientation Week Activities?
The Smith Commerce Orientation, Week Fee Waiver Program, is coming soon. Students who apply and are approved for a Fee Waiver will receive financial assistance for the Orientation Week Registration fee.
Q: I missed the deadline for the “I Like Commerce” Uniform! What do I do?
Unfortunately, if you did not order your uniform by the deadline of early August, we cannot guarantee that you will receive your preferred size. Individuals that purchase their Uniform after the deadline will still receive it before Orientation Week, however, sizing will be on a first-come-first-serve basis depending on what we have in stock.
Q: Is preferred size guaranteed for Orientation Week Coveralls?
As long as you purchase your Orientation Week coveralls before 11:59 PM EST on August 30th, you will receive them before Orientation Week. Sizing will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, depending what we have in stock, so we encourage you to purchase your Coveralls as soon as possible! This is because, unlike the “I Like Commerce” Uniform, Coveralls are ordered in advance of registration.
Q: Are dietary accommodations offered during Orientation Week?
Meals provided through Smith Commerce Orientation Week will have dietary options catering to your needs. When registering, please specify any dietary restrictions you may have to guarantee that we have meal options available for you.
Q: Can I choose to be in an Orientation group with my friends?
All incoming students are randomly assigned to Orientation groups to encourage building new connections as you join the program. Regardless of what group you are placed in, we guarantee that you will have an incredible experience and the opportunity to get to know countless students throughout Orientation Week!
