Required Orientations

The Brotherhood and Sisterhood Scholars programs require students to participate in two structured orientations before the academic year begins.

Family Orientation

During this orientation students and their parent/guardians will meet Sisterhood staff and go over key program elements. Staff will also answer any questions students and their parents/guardians may have.

Attending this orientation is mandatory for both students and parents/guardians desiring to participate in the program.

Extended Orientation

The Extended Orientation allows students to live on campus two weeks prior to the beginning of the fall semester to prepare for Math, English, Writing and Reading at the collegiate level to start the academic year strong. During this time students will live in a residence hall with designated Housing & Residence Life (HRL) staff and Academic Success Partnership (ASP) staff. Students will attend Math and Writing intensive courses to prepare for the rigor of university and actively participate in structured workshops and community building activities. 

Attending and completing this orientation is mandatory for students desiring to participate in the program.

*Please note all freshman students at EMU are strongly encouraged to attend EMU’s First Three New Student Orientation.
