EmBark Orientation

UNC Asheville’s EmBark Orientation teaches all new Bulldogs about academic advising, curriculum, course registration processes, campus resources, and much more. Each EmBark session is packed with activities as well as opportunities to meet other new students. EmBark employs UNC Asheville upperclassman students, known as the Blue Crew Orientation Leaders, to assist with helping you to meet other new students, learn about campus resources, navigate the curriculum requirements, and find your niche. All new, degree-seeking transfer and freshman students are required to attend EmBark.

Fall 2021 EmBark Orientation

In this unprecedented time, we have made the decision to host a hybrid EmBark Orientation for our incoming students and family members. We will host virtual EmBark for both parents and students from June 11-25, 2021. We will host an in-person August EmBark program from August 12-15, 2021. Both June and August EmBark programs are mandatory to complete orientation. Register for EmBark here.
