New student orientation hosted 16 freshman sessions and three transfer sessions. Editors/ managers were provided with a list of interested students at the end of each of the five weeks. The contacted field represents the number of individuals contacted by the Monday at 9 a.m. following each week’s orientation.

During our new student orientation efforts we made 451 contacts with 223 individuals, which was slightly less than the average number of contacts in previous years but the exact average of individuals. This year did, however, mark the lowest contact rate since we began tracking in 2006, with only 43% contacted by the Monday following each week’s orientation.
