New student Orientation

Orientation for Fall of 2017 will take place September 8 & 9.

A full agenda will be posted later this summer. Plan now to attend!

What's on the agenda?

Orientation schedules include campus tours, time to take care of last-minute campus service needs, interactions with program leaders and other students, as well as helpful workshops, timely information, and the potential to make lifelong friends. Orientation at LDSBC is your opportunity to come and see what the Lord has in store for you.

Where should I park?

You can access the LDSBC Parking Garage from either 400 North or South Temple.


How can I make the most of orientation?

The purpose of Orientation at LDS Business College is to ORIENT, CONNECT, and PREPARE. Take a moment to review these ideas and make a plan to make the most of your orientation experience.


  • Make sure you attend Tuesday’s devotional, which was planned just for you!
  • Visit the institute and ask them for ideas about how to grow spiritually at the College.
  • Take a tour of the College during “semester prep” and look for symbolism meaningful to you.
  • Write in your journal about the Spirit you felt during orientation.


  • Even if you’re shy, take the initiative to meet at least a few new people—don’t wait for them to come to you!
  • Make sure you meet your program chair—shake their hand during program breakouts or visit them during “semester prep.”
  • Carry a prayer in your heart to help you better understand why heaven has brought you here.


  • Make sure to accomplish as many items on the “semester prep” checklist you can, even those you don’t “have to” do.
  • Get a copy of your class schedule and walk the halls as though you were going to your classes. Ask your teachers what you could do to be better prepared for the first day of class.
  • Ask your program director or current students for their advice on how you can be successful this semester. Take notes…and review them!
  • As you go through the various parts of orientation, ask yourself, “What more should I do to be better prepared?” Record impressions and create a plan to act upon them.
