“When students first meet their orientation leaders, they're usually very quiet. But it's the role of their orientation leader to get them comfortable with each other, make friends, participate in the different activities. If students have any questions they should feel like they can ask that question without being judged or that they shouldn't ask - there is no such thing as a dumb question when it comes to orientation.”

Curry offers a variety of activities and events for students, many that have become traditions on campus. To begin the year, Welcome Week has become an annual celebration to welcome both new and returning students to campus. Events during the week have included a visit from an ice cream truck with free ice cream, a BINGO night, various novelty events like tie-dye shirts or spin-art frisbees, and entertainers such as mentalists or comedians. Similarly, Winter Week takes the cold out of winter to welcome students back in the spring semester. This series of events has included an open skate night at Ulin Rink, karaoke and other fun activities to help warm-up!
Other traditions throughout the year include Late Night Breakfast to mark the end of classes each semester. If you enjoy friendly competition, come compete or watch the annual Powder Puff flag football game featuring competition between females in each class or see Curry students take on faculty and staff members in the Faculty/Staff vs. Student Basketball Game.
As the weather gets warm, students look forward to Spring Weekend each April. Spring Weekend is a three day event that features the annual Mr. Curry competition, various outdoor activities, an amazing dance party in Miller Field House and more! The Big Bang talent show also happens each April and features dancers, poets and music.
Looking for weekend activities? The Friday Night Live series in the Student Center showcases live music, comedy, game nights, and more every Friday night or come dance the night away on a Saturday night at a Dance Party scheduled regularly each semester.
