Orientation

As an incoming student, you are strongly encouraged to begin your academic career by attending the New Student Orientation. Attending Orientation is your best way to acclimate to life here at Brooklyn College; we will provide you with opportunities to meet the academic leadership of the college, network with current upper level students, experience the rich campus life of the college, and learn about the various services offered by the Division of Student Affairs and other administrative offices.

Some other activities that take place at Orientation include:

  • opportunities to meet with current student government leaders,
  • introductions to our co-curricular programming and multicultural opportunities,
  • discussions with current students about various involvement opportunities on campus, and
  • workshops that focus on key concepts for your college success.
