Pre-Orientation Experiences

Based on an expanding set of NY State travel advisories that are impacting students who plan to return to campus from around the country and who may need to quarantine upon arrival, we had to alter plans to minimize other early arrivals and suspend our pre-orientation trips planned for August. This tough decision was made so we can be inclusive of all students and to focus on ensuring that we start off the semester with a safe and healthy campus community.

Campus Housing
  • Rooms in first year housing are between 199 sq. feet and 245 sq. feet. (14’x14′ to 16’x16′).
  • Beds can be raised to 4ft. Should you want your bed lofted, you will need to purchase and assemble your own lofting materials.
  • Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are a residential environment where students with similar interests live together and participate in programs that cater to their academic, social, and personal needs. All first-year students are housed within an LLC. Students living in these communities have the opportunity to partake in experiences with their peers and interact with dedicated staff members who work to make the community a success, while enjoying the benefits of being part of a diverse community that shares personal, social and scholarly interests. View the full description of each LLC here!
