About the Program:
YouBelong is a series designed specifically for transfer students and focuses on social and academic transitions students may encounter during their first semester at Geneseo.  The program series runs during the fall and spring semesters.

The YouBelong program series:
  • Addresses the needs of transfer students by providing programs that address academic, social, and transitional issues. 
  • Provides information regarding locations of campus facilities, use of college offices and services, and other essential information through regular communication with transfer students
  • Presents opportunities for transfer students to socialize and interact with other Geneseo students and develop academic and co-curricular interests through informational sessions and workshops.
  • Provides individual guidance and support to all transfer students during the transition process.

Navigating Milne Library for Transfer Students

Tueday, February 3 and Wednesday, February 4 | 7:00-8:00pm | Milne 213

When transfer students come to SUNY Geneseo, they typically bypass INTD 105--the course that formally introduces new Geneseo students to the Milne Library and its many resources. As a result, these students sometimes run into difficulties when faced with their first assignment(s) involving library research. This workshop is designed to get our many transfer students up-to-speed with their peers by introducing them to the library's many resources and teaching them a few key research methods. Taught by Daniel Ross, Milne Library.
