The College Programming Office (CPO) works to create a sense of class community and institutional affinity through the implementation of a four-year, co-curricular programming model that emphasizes skill development and preparation for future endeavors. From Orientation for new students through Senior Week, the CPO supports students through their undergraduate career by making available timely programs and initiatives specific to each class. Along with intentional programming and communications for parents and families, such as Family Orientation and Family Weekend, the CPO also provides significant markers and memories that reinforce the role of life-long stewardship and active participation within the College.
