Student Orientation

Manresa for Parents and Family

With the newest Fall 2021 semester updates, classes will begin on Monday, August 16th. This will allow for all students to depart for Thanksgiving and complete finals remotely. Based upon our current knowledge, the Manresa Orientation Team and Office of Residence Life are actively working to create a move-in and orientation plan that creates opportunities for appropriate social distancing to keep the entire Xavier family safe.
