Welcome to OR Welcome Back to MassBay!

We know that coming back to this virtual semester might feel overwhelming. Your attention is pulled in a lot of directions; most of you are working, going to school, and have family responsibilities, all while trying to navigate our new reality. Getting back into school can be a challenging transition- whether it’s been 3 weeks, 3 months, or 3 years since your last class.

To help you stay focused and get connected to your peers and opportunities here at MassBay, we’ve created themes for the first 8 weeks of the semester to help you focus your attention on different opportunities and settling in to the semester. Below you will find information and events for the first 8 weeks of the semester.

If this is your first semester here at MassBay, this semester may be especially challenging. To you help you navigate your first semester here at MassBay, Academic Advising and Student Engagement have put together a Guide to Your First Semester map to help breakdown important milestones and provide resources to look out for along the way. Use it throughout the semester to help stay on track!
