New Student Events

Saint Leo University offers several events to help prepare new students for their SLU experience.

New Student Orientation - Week of Welcome

Saint Leo University hosts our New Student Orientation - known as Week of Welcome - prior to the start of each semester. This multi-day event prepares incoming students for personal and academic success at SLU. For complete information, visit:


Summer Fest

Saint Leo University hosts two Summer Fest events for new students who will be entering in the fall semester. This half-day event allows new students and their families an opportunity to meet with admission counselors and financial aid advisors, turn in any outstanding new student paperwork, and learn more about the Week of Welcome orientation program for the fall. 

Come enjoy games and activities as you get to know your future classmates!

Regional Summer Send-Offs

Join other new students and their families at a regional summer send-off event. These informal gatherings are hosted by Saint Leo alumni and parents in locations around Florida, Maryland, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

Bring your parents, and meet other students and families in your local area who will be attending Saint Leo in the fall, along with alumni eager to share their Saint Leo experiences.
