Fall Welcome Program

Fall Welcome is Ithaca's continuing orientation program that happens over three days prior to the first day of classes. It is designed to assist new and transfer students in becoming acquainted with their new college environment and provides greater opportunity for academic, social, and individual growth. All first-year students will receive the complete Fall Welcome Program which includes a copy of the schedule when they check into their fall room assignment.  Program highlights are listed below.
