Orientation Details

We created an orientation program to make sure our new ELI students feel comfortable at Mercer and are able to get their questions answered before classes begin. A full orientation week will take place before the Fall I, Spring I, and Summer I sessions. A one-day mini-orientation will be offered for students entering in the Fall II, Spring II, and Summer II sessions.

During our orientation, students go on a tour of campus, take an English placement test, get their Mercer Bear Card, meet Mercer staff and faculty members from across campus, and attend several sessions about topics like immigration, cultural adjustment, U.S. classroom behavior, and more! Orientation is required for all new students.
