FYI: Winter Welcome Orientation starts on January 18


Contributed by Erica Shockley

First-Year Experience wants to remind the campus community that we will be hosting the spring orientation program, Winter Welcome, for new spring admits starting this Friday, January 18.

We expect between 40-50 transfer and new students along with approximately 50-60 family members to arrive on-campus Friday morning.   Winter Welcome runs from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon, and all students will be encouraged to participate in Monday’s MLK Campus Celebration Day.  Also, we have built in time for students to set-up necessary meetings and take care of last minute business on Friday afternoon. 

You can find a tentative schedule and other important information about Winter Welcome on the First-Year Experience website:  You can also contact us directly by phone at 274-1908 or email at with any immediate questions.

We appreciate your assistance in welcoming these new Ithaca students to our campus this weekend, and we wish all of you a great spring semester!
