Orientation 2024
Welcome Cougars and Parents!

Students and parents are encouraged to participate in Orientation and Cleary Welcome Weekend festivities! 

Orientation is an important step in getting the most out of Cleary. It’s a chance for you to visit campus, meet your professors, and have all your questions answered. Arrive at the Cleary Commons to check in. Then, you’ll hear from some of the people you need to know including:

  • Dr. Alan Drimmer, Cleary’s President
  • Dr. Doug Stein, Cleary’s Provost and Executive Vice President
  • Heather Bateman, Senior Vice President of Campus Operations 
  • David Victor, Ombudsman 
  • Cat Hopkins, Campus Safety and Director of Residence Life 
  • Amy Denton, Director of Career Development 
  • Jeremy Walker, Senior Vice President of Enrollment Management

After that is the best part — lunch! Then, a campus tour. You’ll also get to stop at booths hosted by our student clubs and local businesses. Let’s meet in person and kick off the school year together! Be sure to register and we’ll see you then. 

In the meantime, let us know if you have any questions! Call 800-686-1883 or email admissions@cleary.edu
