Summer 2022 Virtual Sessions

New Eagle Essentials

We bring together all of our New Eagle Essentials into one live, online session. In large and small group sessions, we'll prepare students and families for the transition ahead. Students register through Engage and we'll send families an invitation to register separately in June. Three dates to choose from - mark your calendar now!

  • Tuesday, June 28: 6pm - 9pm ET 
  • Wednesday, July 13: noon - 3pm ET
  • Saturday, July 23: 9am - noon ET

If these options don't work, just let us know (in Engage) and we'll work with you to make sure you are able to get your New Eagle Essentials covered.

Get Social and Get Connected

Choose from a variety of optional social and informational Zoom meetings throughout July and early August. Connect with Eagles everywhere as you learn how to navigate your first-year here at American University. Explore shared interests, identies and curiosities with orientation leaders, other new students and even alumni!
