New Student Orientation

Welcome to Manhattan College!

Our goal is to provide an engaging, informative orientation experience. We will keep you posted if there are any changes to our upcoming orientation.

2019-Orientation-Leaders-Group-2.jpgOrientation is an essential and exciting program that introduces incoming freshman and transfer students to all aspects of campus life. A variety of activities and information sessions will connect you with key administrators, fellow new students, and current students that will serve as your Orientation Leaders in easing your transition to college life. You will participate in academic planning sessions, attend student life panels, meet other new students over fun activities, and receive your first semester class schedule. This program is mandatory for all new students.
