Freshman students are required to attend a Mandatory Orientation Session. All ROAR! sessions consist of a full day program for students and family members.
ROAR! = Resources, Orientation, Advising and Registration
During ROAR! you will interact with other new students, faculty
members and administrators, meet with your academic advisor and register
In addition, this will be a great chance for you to discover the various
opportunities provided at Governors State including involvement in
student organizations, volunteer opportunities, support services, and
many other aspects of being a GSU student.
members are invited and encouraged to attend ROAR. We'll provide you with information about various academic programs and
services available to your students.
Please note: There is a $35 fee for each guest who attends Freshman Orientation (ROAR!). The fee is vital to keeping our costs down as we provide orientation programming, meals and materials for guests. The fee for guests is charged to the student's account.
