2018 Pre-Orientation Programs

Prior to Syracuse Welcome in August, new first-year and transfer students can participate a pre-orientation program.  From outdoor adventure to on-campus acclimation, there are programs for all interests!  Students participating in a pre-orientation program move in to their fall housing assignment early, make connections with other new students, get familiar with campus, explore their new home, and have fun!

More information about the 2018 pre-orientation programs will be available on May 1st.
