Orientation & New Student Programs


  • Have your HSU ID# handy before you place your call
  • HOP Peer Counselors answer the orientation phone line. They want to support you and your decision to attend HSU. Be prepared to receive mentorship from them on a variety of topics, including:
    • reminders to check & read emails, especially if your call informs us that you have not been reading emails from HSU
    • coaching on college success strategies, such as collegial & clear communication, and meeting deadlines
  • Write down any orientation-related questions before your call so that you don't forget any of them
  • We are a very small office and high call volumes during some weeks of the year. Please be patient with us and be sure to leave a voicemail message if you do not reach someone directly. We return calls within 24 hours.
    • Your voicemail message must contain your name, HSU ID#, and a phone number to insure that you receive a timely return call
  • We encourage you to always write down the name of the HSU representative that you speak with and their direct telephone number and keep those records.
