New Student Orientation


Congratulations on taking your next step toward your college education! 

At the Office of New Student Programs, we are committed to making your transition to Sul Ross State University as smooth, informative, and fun as possible.

New Student Orientation is designed to assist you in preparing for academic and social life at SRSU while providing you the opportunity to get advised, register for classes, experience life on campus, make new connections, and complete any business transactions before the semester starts.

All New Student Orientation events include an overnight stay with Residential Living (reservation made and paid for separately), a dinner for the student on the first evening with select faculty and staff members, a student breakfast and lunch, registration for classes, and engaging activites to meet your fellow Lobos. Students and guests may purchase additional meals throughout the weekend from Aramark dining services.

In order to provide a quality experience for each student, each event is capped at 75 student-attendees. New Student Orientation, aside from your Residential Living reservation, is funded through the Student Orientation Fee.  

At New Student Orientation you will meet fellow students, visit with your advisor, enroll in classes, discuss financial aid, confirm your housing and much more!

Overnight on Campus

New Student Orientation is an overnight event in conjunction with SRSU  Residential Living.  Please contact Admissions for more information about this option. Space is limited to students registered for New Student Oreintation and is only available to students. Students must make reservations with Residential Life to reserve a room (RESERVE ROOM HERE) and parents need to make separate overnight plans. Please note there is a standard $30.00 charge for reserving a room. All students staying in the residential living units must complete a GUEST HOUSING AGREEMENT. For more information on guest housing, click here. Residential Life can be contacted at or 432-837-8190.

If you are staying overnight in a dorm room, bring your own sleeping bag or other bedding, towel, and a pillow.

If you are unable to stay overnight due to extenuating circumstances, please contact the Director of New Student Programs to make alternate plans. It is highly recommended all incoming students participate in the full New Student Orientation agenda.
