Your Day on Campus is a one-day pre-orientation experience that isn't just an introduction to Manhattan College, but also it's a fun opportunity to hear directly from people in Manhattan College community and get an idea of what life is like as a Jasper. There are a variety of activities that will connect you with other first-year Jaspers, peer leaders, and key figures who will play a major role in your college experience across the next four years.  

What to expect at your Day on Campus:

  • Meet with your assigned Peer Leader, who is an upperclassman student who will help you along your first year of college.  
  • Go over your Fall schedule with the help of an Academic Advisor
  • Learn more about campus and life as a Jasper.
  • Connect with other incoming first year students.
  • A day of FUN!

A schedule with more information will be posted soon. All new students are required to attend one of the scheduled Days on Campus.
