OLÉ! Weekend Schedule

August 26 - August 30, 2016

OLÉ! Weekend is USD's on-campus orientation for first-year students entering USD in Fall 2016. This five-day program allows you to move in, meet your fellow classmates, connect with your faculty advisor, and begin experiencing your Living Learning Community (LLC). 

The Office of Parent Relations partners with the Orientation Planning Committee to coordinate a Parent and Family Orientation Program that coincides with your student's OLÉ! Weekend. The Parent and Family Orientation program runs from move-in on Friday, August 26, to the Mass of Welcome on Sunday, August 28. Visit the Parent Relations website for more information. 

First-year students do not need to register for OLÉ! Weekend. We do ask that you let us know if you have dietary restrictions by completing the OLÉ! Weekend Dietary Restriction form online.

A full, detailed schedule of OLÉ! Weekend is available below, as well as a schedule-at-a-glance. Each student will recieve a printed program booklet upon arriving to campus.
