Step 10 - Orientation


Orientation is a series of formal and informal fun-filled events to welcome to new students to Avondale and to welcome back returning students. It is a great way to meet new people, connect with Avondale staff and get involved in the Avondale community.

The 2019 ORIENTATION schedule is COMING SOON!
