    • Supportive activities throughout the first year
    • Various "Road Trip" opportunities scheduled for first year students
    • i.e. an example of an Inigo program for 2013-2014: The Inigo Day of Service provides an opportunity for first year students to come together as a group and give back to the greater Philadelphia area, working in nearby Manayunk and Roxborough neighborhoods, as well as along the banks of the Schuylkill River. Participants will be able to see first-hand the impact they can have on their community and learn a bit about the mission of our local community partners.  SJU staff and upperclassmen will also work alongside first year students and share their knowledge about SJU's commitment to service.


Both the Student Activity fee and the Student Orientation fee are non-refundable.
