3. Identify your College Adjustment Peer (CAP) and meet him/her on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. at the location assigned on the chart found on the third page of this schedule.

4. If an event is repeated, you only need attend one of the arranged times for that event. Review the schedule and plan to attend the session with the fewest conflicts.

5. During Orientation you will meet with your advisor to plan your class schedule prior to

registration. Before you meet with your advisor you must participate in the following (in no particular order): • Writing Exercise: all students participating in an FYS class are required to complete, perferably during the summer. • Music Placement Test (if applicable). • Music Audition (if applicable, by appointment). • Foreign Language Placement (if applicable).

Using the Orientation Schedule Athletic Practices

Information regarding athletic practices and music auditions may be found on the first page of each day. The “Athletics” section pertains to students involved in campus athletics and lists practice times for all athletic teams during that day. Remember to always check with your instructor or coach to verify the time and location of your next practice. If a conflict arises between a practice and a required Orientation event, you should always attend the required Orientation event.

Foreign Language Placement

Have you had Spanish, French, or German in high school and want to find your appropriate level at Coe? If you haven’t already completed our language placement test, come take it now so we can send you placement instructions before your first advising appointment.

Music Auditions

Information regarding music auditions can be found on the first page of each day. The “Music” section lists all of the times when the music placement test and music auditions will take place throughout that day. Remember to always check with your instructor to verify the time and location of your audition.

Summer Writing Exercise All first-year students were expected to complete the Writing Exercise online prior to arriving on campus. If you have not completed the Writing Exercise, you must complete it at the designated time on Wednesday, August 20, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Each student’s paper is scored by two or three different faculty readers. Based on these evaluations, faculty advisors will receive recommendations concerning students who should consider enrolling in a writing course during their first term at Coe. All first-year students must complete the Writing Exercise before they can complete course registration.

Identification Cards All students must obtain a Coe identification card. The Coe identification card also serves as access to the residence halls. If you sent in a picture for your identification card this summer, you will receive your card upon check in at your residence hall. If you did not send in a picture this summer, please visit the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs in Upper Gage after picking up your residence hall keys. The office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. All ID cards are free of charge the first time. If your card is lost or damaged, a replacement costs $30.00. Students must carry their ID cards with them and present them to the host at each meal in The “U”. Upon turning 21 years of age, a student will be issued a new ID card in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. DO NOT PUT A HOLE IN THE CARD.

Orientation Week Championship Throughout the week of Orientation, you will note several events marked as CAP Team events. All of these events are in the spirit of fun and are a part of the “Orientation Week Championship.” Points are awarded based on participation with a bonus given to the winning teams of each CAP Team event.

The Victory Bell

In 1995, Coe started the tradition of firstyear students ringing the Victory Bell when they commence to their opening convocation. The bell is rung again four years later, at graduation, to celebrate the successful completion of a degree. The Victory Bell is symbolic in that it stands for what Coe has achieved in the past and hopes to achieve in the future. Its very name is synonymous with achievement, not only in the field of athletics, but in academics and the betterment of Coe as well.
