Welcome to Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University (formerly known as Our Lady of the Lake College). We invite all Freshmen and Transfer students to select their orientation session. Re-entry students having been out more than 2 years are strongly encouraged to also attend. Your orientation session will provide the opportunity for you to become more familiar with the unique services available to assist in making your transition into Franciscan University a pleasant one. We are aware of the hard work and preparation you have expended and hope your journey here will be enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding.
Schedule an appointment to meet with your advisor prior to orientation to schedule and registrar for your classes. If you are unable to meet prior to orientation, advisors will be available on that day, but your selection of class sections may be more limited.
Orientation is held in our Biological Learning and Research Building (BLR #7 on Campus Map), 5222 Brittany Drive, Suite B, Baton Rouge, LA 70808. Check-in begins at 8:30am. Dress comfortably on orientation day. You will take a brief walking tour of campus. We suggest you bring a sweater or jacket should the room temperature become cool and an umbrella if it looks like there may be rain. Lunch will be served and all necessary materials for the event will be provided.
We also offer a Family Orientation session which runs simultaneously at the same location. As you make the transition to university life for the first time, the role of your significant family member(s) also changes. You will continue to look to family members for guidance and support and we know that students make better decisions when they discuss their academic and life choices with their family. This program will give an overview of student life at Franciscan University and information on the latest academic requirements, fees, and student resources. By sharing the orientation process with your family members(s), they will learn how to make your transition to college life successful and participate in the excitement that makes Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University such a special place.
