2013 Summer Orientation
Welcome New and Transfer Students!
Going to college, even a new college, can simultaneously be exhilarating and overwhelming. You may be excited but equally as nervous about meeting new people, experiencing a new (or different) college environment, finding roommates, attending college-level classes, navigating the campus, finding acceptance in a new environment, or just exploring a new town!
To make this significant transition a little bit easier, Ithaca has a summer orientation program where new and transfer students can meet other classmates, learn about campus life, attend workshops and social events, gain exposure to some of the academic and social challenges they might face, talk with faculty, and register for fall semester classes. Orientation is a great time to hear from current students, ask questions, and get a sneak peak of what to expect at Ithaca College before the semester starts.

During the summer orientation experience, students will:
- Have meaningful interactions with peers, faculty, and staff, in and outside the classroom
- Be aware of campus resources and services that support academic and personal development
- Build and educational plan for courses and the exploration of academic programs (students will complete their fall semester class schedule during orientation)
- Understand how to lead healthy and sustainable lifestyles
