New Student Orientation

August 26-30, 2015

Welcome, new students! On behalf of the community, I congratulate you on your decision to attend HCHC. I am excited that you have made the choice to call Hellenic College Holy Cross your home away from home for the 2015–2016 academic year and beyond. HCHC is committed not only to high academic standards but to your intellectual, moral, and spiritual formation. As such, you should expect the start of this academic year to be full of opportunities and challenges which will contribute to your growth as a member of our Orthodox Christian community.

New Student Orientation is scheduled for August 26–30, 2015, and is mandatory for all new students so that you can have the best possible transition into the joyful, vibrant life at HCHC. When you arrive on campus, you will begin your academic and co-curricular journey as members of a community seeking your formation and development into a service-oriented leader.

In the weeks leading into Orientation, you will receive email updates with next steps, reminders, the Orientation schedule, and many more pieces of vital information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at 617-850-1297 or to email me at

Again, welcome to HCHC. I look forward to greeting you on August 26th!

Love in Christ,

Rev. Dn. Nicholas Belcher
Dean of Students
