Summer Orientation

All Mason Gross students are encouraged to attend a New Student Summer Orientation. The New Student Orientation will help you become acclimated to Rutgers University as a whole. Mason Gross priority dates are Monday, July 28 and Tuesday, July 29. It is not mandatory that Mason Gross students attend these dates, but there will be a small section of the orientation on these dates geared toward Mason Gross students. Students can attend any of the New Student Orientation dates found here.
