Welcome, New Explorers!

EXPLORIENTATION

Welcome to La Salle University!

Kick off your opening weekend as a La Salle Explorer at Explorientation, from Thursday, Aug. 25 through Sunday, Aug. 28. Explorientation, or Explo for short, helps you settle into your new life as an Explorer with campus-wide activities, such as Club Quad, Explorer soccer games, and performances at Dan Rodden Theatre, just to name a few. You will also learn important information related to your academic success, safety, wellness, and involvement on campus. Even more, it’s a chance to connect with and meet fellow classmates and have some fun before the first day of classes!
