Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will provide you with a number of resources to help your transition to college life as a first-year student.

Students of Color Orientation (SOCO)

Each Fall, ODEI hosts a new student orientation for first-year students from historically underrepresented and/or marginalized communities. The orientation offers guidance to students as they make two major transitions: (1) Moving from their respective high schools and communities to an academically demanding residential community, (2) and for many, moving from their previous home communities to a new and comparatively smaller rural town.
