Continue the journey to your first semester at ESU! Exclusive experience for 1st and 2nd year students

Warrior Induction is a two-part process. Start on July 1 by exploring the many services and programs that ESU has to offer. Spend time learning about:

  • Desire2Learn (D2L) is ESU’s course management program. D2L will help you connect to course resources and interact with other Warriors and your faculty.
  • WarriorFish will help you set up appointments and connect you to supportive resources.
  • Way of the Warrior embodies a set of principles and values that Warriors should embrace and exemplify.
  • Campus Life helps you get connected to people, experiences, and resources.

Your induction culminates with the start of the fall semester: Warrior Induction Weekend

During Warrior Induction Weekend, you will:

  • Meet your Peer Mentor, an upper-class student who will help you through your entire fall semester. They will connect you to resources, answer your questions, and orient you to the campus and off-campus community.
  • Learn about self-care: managing stress, anxiety, and homesickness, risks and consequences associated with using alcohol and drugs, maintaining healthy and respectful relationships, and understanding the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion – which are core values of a Warrior.
