Mount Ida Orientation

Welcome! We could not be more excited to have you join our Mount Ida College community, and we are ready to guide you and your family as you transition into college life. Whether you’re from a small town, big city or even another country, Orientation will acquaint you with all of the academic, social, athletic and cultural opportunities awaiting you at Mount Ida. Get ready to explore and experience your new campus as a proud Mustang.

For more information please take some time to read through the FAQs page. It is full of useful information, like check-in time, what to bring and other important need-to-knows.

Parent/Family Orientation Program

During our Parent/Family program you will have the opportunity to see buildings, meet faculty and staff, and learn about the campus life your student will experience as a new mustang. Attendance at the Parent/Family Program is strongly encouraged as history tells us that students who have a parent, family member, or guest attend have a smoother transition and are better prepared to manage the many changes that come along with starting a new school.

In an effort to help Mount Ida better connect with parents and family members of our students, we would like it if you could take a moment to complete this short questionnaire.
