Summer Gateways

Welcome new students!

Gateways Summer Orientation is a one and a half day program designed to provide new students and their parents with the opportunity to become better acquainted with the many aspects of Holy Cross. The goal of the program is to help students make a successful transition into the College. Through information sessions, discussions with current students, faculty and administrators, and a wide array of social activities, students gain valuable knowledge about the College and are able to learn first hand about academic, spiritual, and social life while getting to know other members of their class.

There are three Gateways Summer Orientation sessions offered in June. The Gateways Orientation Office will mail all enrolled students information and registration for Gateways in mid-May.
