Mine was last Thursday and Friday. University of Oregon.
Put into awkward situations. 450 kids out of my 4000 student class was at this orientation. The broke us up into groups by majors. I met a kid from near where I was from. Then they put us through 2 one hour long academic advising sessions. Those were pretty helpful. Then a lunch. Pretty awkward. Talked to kids, but I didn't really mesh with anyone who I could see as my best friend.
Then they made us take placement tests. That was all good. Met a cute girl who was one of the upperclassmen helping out. Haha. And a couple cool guys who I could see myself hanging with.
Then they stuck us in an auditorium for 3 hours and gave us talks about drinking and date rape. Then we were out for dinner. That night was a play about "what to expect your freshman year" and then we could go and play pool and hang out until 11. Haha. So I left after dinner and skipped on those.
Next day was one on one academic advising. Got my schedule and ID card. Then I dipped out of all the information sessions. I felt like I had grip on everything. It was just about "fitting in" and a couple info sessions on fraternities.
Overall, it was an okay experience. I just want to get there, start school, and make friends on my own without being thrown into "just mingle" situations.
My orientation was pretty similar to yours in some aspects. Here's a novel of my orientation. I'm pretty sure some of this shit is out of order because so much happened in these two days:
On the first day, we were separated in like 18 groups with about 18-22 people per group and each group was assigned two group leaders (one of my leaders was crazy, but he was funny) that are on the student orientation staff. Our group then went to a classroom and basically introduced ourselves and played the two-truths-and-a-lie game. Each group also had to create a "chant" and whoever had the best chant won a prize or some shit. After that, we took this test that made sure we knew how to use Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, which was really wasy. After we did that, we went to lunch and I sat and talked with some of the people in my group; after lunch, I went take my pic for my student ID. Then we went to an auditorium and watched a pretty long skit that summed up college life. After that, we went to two sessions that we picked that lasted for like two hours, and then we went to another classroom and talked and worked on our chant some more. After that, we went to dinner and all the students at orientation went to the ballroom to play games and meet new people in different groups. I then left and went back to my hotel with my sister (who is also gonna be at the same school as me). It was about 8:30 at night when that day was over.
Day two was shorter. One of my group leaders gave our group a really short tour of the university, even though the campus is huge. We then went to the "square" and took pics with our groups, and then with everyone that was at orientation. We then went to lunch and after that, we talked about Financial Aid and TOPS (a Louisiana thing), and then we went to another building and some people talking about fraternities/sororities, clubs, and shit like that. After that, we split from our groups and we were divided by our field. We then broke up to even smaller groups in our majors and a teacher talked to us (at this point, it was just me and like 13 people) about our majors. After that, I went to the library to schedule my classes and took a mandatory survey. I finished scheduling at the exact same time as my sister, and then we were able to go home after that! It was 4:00 when we were out of there.
tl;dr I had fun at orientation...haha
EDIT: I left some things out, but I don't feel like adding them in there ha
