New Student Orientation

Freshman and Parent Orientation Registration Opens October 15th!

To Our Future Bulldogs,

We are excited to announce the dates for Summer Orientation 2021! Each year, we look forward to hosting our incoming students at summer orientation. This is where their Tech story begins as they experience the beauty of our campus, meet future classmates who become friends, and discover what makes the Tech community a family. We know that after those three days on campus, our students have found a home they cannot wait to return to in the fall. With the situation regarding COVID continuing to effect our communities, we understand the need to prepare for all eventualities as it relates to hosting events during a global pandemic.

As we plan for summer 2021 and in-person orientation sessions, we will continue to seek the guidance of university, state, and federal guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our orientation guests. With such fluid plans come many questions and our office will work to answer them all in a timely fashion. To help, we are including answers to some of our more frequently asked questions below and on our Orientation FAQ page. If you do not find the answer to your question below, please feel free to contact us at

Forever Loyal,

Louisiana Tech Orientation
