Thursday, August 30, 2012 - Commuter Welcome Program
This program for Commuters includes lunch, a tour and an overview of New Student Orientation. While commuter students are welcome to attend Friday and Sunday Orientation activities, the most critical sessions occur primarily on Saturday. For all students beginning at SUNY Delhi for the Spring term (January), the Orientation program runs two days (Saturday and Sunday), and commuters are welcome to attend both days. Please note: As a commuter you are required, like all students, to have a student mailbox, an email account, an ID card and so forth. Orientation is the BEST time to pick up these items and take care of business.
Friday, August 31, 2012 - The first day is focused primarily on ‘moving in.' Because we have over 1,000 new students arriving in late August, we make a special effort to roll out the red carpet and provide you with additional assistance unloading your belongings. A big festive barbeque with live music makes for a lively and welcoming start to the semester and the Opening Convocation is your first opportunity to hear from our College President, Dr. Candace Vancko. We round out the day with informative and entertaining skits by our Student Orientation Leaders, and then some late night entertainment.
Saturday, September 1, 2012 - The second day is packed with academic meetings, advisor meetings, financial aid sessions and many other informative sessions that highlightservices such as tutoring, career guidance, counseling and health, leadership and community service opportunities. There are meetings for returning adult students and a specially designed "transfer track" for transfer students. Student Orientation staff are available to answer questions and show you around. Live entertainment ends the day and provides you the chance to relax and meet other new students.
Sunday, September 2, 2012 - The third day of the fall program provides us an opportunity to help you get to know and appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings of the Delhi campus. We host field day events in a local park that include fun games, music, food, prize drawings and more! You will spend the day playing, relaxing, eating, and hanging out with other new students before classes begin on Monday!
For those students entering in the spring semester, there is a 2-day Orientation in January that is a slightly abbreviated version of the fall program, minus the field day events.
