In late August, more than 1,500 students arrived at Ithaca College prior to the start of classes for fall orientation — more than a week’s worth of events designed to bring students together as one community.
This year marked the first time all incoming students participated in a single orientation event. By arriving together in one large cohort, the students were able to connect with their peers in a more meaningful way.
“Orientation has allowed me to meet a lot of cool people I would have never imagined meeting,” said Jennifer Pitts ’23, a business administration major. “It was especially nice to meet people with the same interests I have, because I was with people in my major throughout the day.”
