Welcome All Freshmen to the Institute of Space Technology (IST) and IST Virtual Orientation!
With the health and safety of the students, family members and IST community being paramount, IST has decided to conduct orientation lectures online for Fall 2020.
The Freshman Orientation program is envisioned to acclimate, transition and integrate new students to the institution, and life at IST while introducing them to the extensive educational opportunities at IST.
We at IST, are committed to provide new students and their families with a high-quality virtual orientation experience to provide timely and relevant information that is easily accessible while providing personal connections to IST.
Some components of the virtual orientation experience will still occur in real-time on the scheduled days via live feed, while most components will be self-paced and can be viewed throughout the Fall.
