University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation 2020

Welcome Class of 2024!  

We are excited that you have chosen the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown to continue your academic journey.  Our orientation team is eager to meet you and help you navigate the new student orientation program. 

We offer this program to achieve these three goals: 

1) To prepare you for the academic rigor of the university and help you with resources to achieve academic success

2) To create a knowledge of campus 

3) To create a strong sense of community 

We cannot wait to see all of you on campus and/or online as you interact with our volunteer orientation leaders. 



Please download this schedule.  Full event descriptions can be accessed at  Search for Johnstown and you will see everything that we have in store.     


 This calendar below is also accessible on the MyPitt app that is available for ios and Android in the app store. 
 If you have any questions about new student orientation or engaging with life outside the classroom (virtually and in person!), please contact Heather Hall, Director of   Campus Activities and Engagement at


We are #MtCatProud!  Hail to Pitt!
