New Student Orientation

New Student ​Orientation at Geneseo helps transition first-year and transfer students to the next steps of their academic and life journeys. It provides opportunities for students to acclimate to campus, make connections, foster a sense of pride in Geneseo, and establish a foundation for academic success. The aim of Orientation, including Weeks of Welcome, is to lay the groundwork for a happy and productive college experience.

There is no formal in-person program for families but we will offer an information session for families in early August. Keep an eye on email for more information!

Welcome to the Knight Life!
