Weeks of Welcome

Orientation and Weeks of Welcome

At Geneseo the entire campus looks forward to welcoming new students. 

Student Life works with new students throughout the spring semester, summer months, and fall semester. 

The goal of Orientation and Weeks of Welcome is to start to create a sense of belonging for new students by helping transition first year and transfer students to the next steps of their academic and life journeys.

Orientation provides opportunities for students to acclimate to campus, make connections, develop pride in Geneseo and establish a foundation for academic success and runs from their first contact with Geneseo through finals of their first semester. 

Weeks of Welcome is series of events at the beginning of the semester to welcome our new students and help them get to know the campus and make new friends. Participation in Orientation & WOW activities is one of the best ways to start getting the most out of the Geneseo experience.

More information regarding fall 2022 in-person Orientation will be released at the end of May 2022. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
