Orbit: Keeping New Comets on Course


The Orbit initiative represents The University of Texas at Dallas’ commitment to all new students — first-year students, transfer students, graduate students and international students — supporting new Comets as they connect, explore and find their place on campus.

Orbit aims to create a community in which new students are actively involved and feel a greater sense of belonging at UT Dallas, increasing students’ knowledge of university resources, helping them develop meaningful connections with faculty and fellow Comets, and encouraging them to participate in academic, co-curricular and extracurricular activities.
