The Orientation Program

The Student Orientation Program is organized at the beginning of the first academic year when new students join the University.

The aim of the program is to introduce our new students and their valuable families to our University, which will be their new home during their higher education studies, as well as our employees who will be their new family members by greeting them in a warm environment. We would like to make their first memorable moments as invaluable and guiding as possible.
