Even after Orientation you can continue to make campus connections and learn about important UofL basics by taking advantage of these great programs.

CARDS Connection mentor outreach offers personalized, online summer support by way of knowledgeable and experienced upperclass students who will share their advice on having a great first year.

A nationally award-winning program, the Student Tutorial Online Module Program (STOMP) maximizes university technology to deliver a series of informational modules that are a key part of every student’s academic orientation course.

Getting a head start on the modules over the summer is a great way to connect to campus and ease your transition to college at UofL.
