This comprehensive orientation program (August 20 - 23) is planned to help you make a great start at Marquette. It is also an opportunity to meet other new students from around the world. We recommend students arrive a few days before August 20 so they can rest and prepare for the busy orientation week.

Schedules are below. A printed schedule will be distributed to all new international student on the first day of orientation and will also be available electronically via Guidebook. Download the Marquette app to your phone by going directly to the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store and searching for Marquette Guidebook!
