Blazer Beginnings Orientation is VSU's introduction to campus life for new students. All students are required to attend an orientation session prior to enrolling in classes. Sessions are led by current VSU students and support staff, who are here to answer your questions and show you how VSU is ready to support your success as a new Blazer! You will receive your first-semester class schedule from an academic advisor, connect with Financial Aid, additional support services, and student life.
