New Student Orientation

One of the best ways to determine if a university is right for you is to visit the campus. The Office of New Student Orientation & Campus Visits offers campus tours to provide students and their families as well as high school and/or community groups a better understanding of campus life.

Are you ready to be a Rattler?
A campus visit is a surefire way to determine if a university is right for you! The tours are run by Orange & Green Guides (OGGs), who are highly knowledgeable about the University, its academic programs, and traditions. Your OGG will point out places of interest while providing insightful information about the student experience at FAMU. During your guided tour, you will observe the bustling activity of campus, from students chatting on the "Set," studying in the Quadrangle, or grabbing a bite at the "Orange Room."

The Student Orientation Program lasts 2 ½ days. Students must attend the entire session. Orientation is MANDATORY for all students! Online Orientation Registration Will Be Available On March 15th
