Through New Student Orientation, the Student Engagement & Student Union department works closely with the academic colleges and departments, Admissions, and others in the division of Student Affairs in an effort to provide new students and their families with an overview of what Embry-Riddle has to offer, both in and out of the classroom.
Eagle Takeoff New Student Orientation is a required program for all new students who attend ERAU. During this time, students will learn about the community and the resources available, finalize their class schedule, meet with their academic advisor and get a chance to meet both new and continuing students at Embry-Riddle.

To help family members become better acquainted with our campus community and its many resources, a separate Parent and Family Orientation program has been designed, held in conjunction with New Student Orientation. Parents and guardians have questions and needs that may be different than those of students. They also come with a very different perspective of the ERAU community.
With this in mind, there are two separate Orientation programs, which coincide to cater to the individual needs of both parents and students. Parent and Family Orientation provides family members an opportunity to learn more about the ERAU experience which awaits their new student.
Coming soon! Keep an eye out for 2018 Family Weekend dates.
Daytona Beach has many lodging options, but you can review a list of preferred vendors.

The Orientation Team (O-Team) is responsible for coordinating and staffing all Orientation and Family Relations programming held at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The emphasis of an Orientation Ambassador (O.A.) is meeting and greeting every new student and their family to the University, while helping facilitate the answer to all of their questions about Embry-Riddle.
An O.A. is a student representative who assists in a variety of programs which help new students transition to college life. O.A.s seek to create an atmosphere that minimizes anxiety, promotes positive attitudes, and stimulates excitement for learning and involvement within our community.
As an O.A., student leaders have the opportunity to meet new students and their families and welcome them to Embry-Riddle. An O.A. does this by actively participating in showing new students and their families the campus, engaging in meaningful conversations with new students at meals and in smaller insight groups and selflessly serving to ignite a passion for ERAU in each new student.
