Orientation and First Year Programs

The Office of Orientation and First Year Programs (OFYP) coordinates and implements transitional programming for all first-year students. Piper Preview, Hamline’s summer orientation program, helps first-year students and their families get a “sneak peek” at what life at Hamline is like, as well as be advised and register for fall classes.

Piper Passages, Hamline’s fall orientation program, helps students transition through academic preparation, social integration and understanding what it means to be a Piper.  The Office of OFYP offers students on-going transitional programming to help first-year students become comfortable and connected to campus.
