New student orientation is an exciting time at Pratt. Whether you are a first year student, a graduate student on either campus, or a transfer/MWP relocation student, we have a comprehensive program for you. During your orientation, you’ll get tons of valuable information and meet other new students. 

The following are the orientation dates for family members and students. This website will be updated over the summer with additional information and any changes to the schedule.
