New Student Orientation
All new students are invited to join us for orientation. For spring students, registration for orientation is now open! See link below for registration.
These two days will be packed with informational seminars, interactive events, new friendships and a worshipful commissioning service. Register to attend, preview the schedule and contact Student Life with any questions (502-897-4227 or firstname.lastname@example.org). See below for information about bringing guests.
*Please note that dorm move-in is included in the orientation schedule. After check-in, students will have until 1pm to move their items into their dorm (with help from us!) and get settled.
**Dual enrollment students are encouraged to attend the first day of orientation, and will receive an alternate orientation schedule from the office of Dual Enrollment.
Fall 2017 Orientation details and registration will be LIVE in the coming weeks!

Families @ Orientation
Parents and Families
Orientation Registration and More!
We’re always delighted to meet the parents and families of our new students. Families are welcome to attend the first day of orientation. Preview the schedule for descriptions of each event. More details for family involvement are below.
Students attending orientation should register their family members’ attendance by listing the number of guests on the registration form. If the number changes or you don’t know how many are registered, just let us know at email@example.com or 502-897-4227.
Where can families stay for the night/weekend? Families may reserve rooms at our full-service Legacy Hotel for convenient lodging on campus. Discounts are available for family members of students. Call 502-736-0600 or email.
Families will have a special opportunity to pray for your students and say goodbye near the end of the Commissioning Service on Friday evening. After the Commissioning Service students will enjoy the student-only Boyce Breakdown in Sampey Commons. Saturday’s events are student-only so that new students can begin operating independently, meeting new friends, asking their own questions and taking ownership of their new life on campus.
Meals at Orientation
Friday’s breakfast and lunch are on your own, but Friday’s dinner is provided as we eat together with faculty, staff, student leaders, new students and visiting families. For breakfast you’re welcome to visit our Founders’ Cafe or Pioneer Dining Center, both located in the Honeycutt Campus Center. If you’d rather get off-campus and experience a local favorite, our students leaders will have the inside scoop about their citywide favorites. Our concierge is also available in the Pavilion with recommendations and maps.
God has graciously blessed Louisville with plenty of solid churches — long-standing churches, revitalized churches, freshly planted churches, multi-campus churches, and small community churches. Boyce College doesn’t maintain a list of “recommended churches,” but you won’t be lacking for recommendations. Our faculty, staff and students love their churches and will share, invite, and recommend freely.
