New Student Programs supports new students in their transition to Cornell. We coordinate a comprehensive orientation program for all new undergraduate students, including a welcome program for their families. The transition to university life takes time, and we are dedicated to providing programming and services throughout the first year at the Tatkon Center for First-Year Students.
