In addition to opportunities in your residential community, please consider attending the Explore Series during orientation and taking a Learning Where You Live course on North Campus.
The Explore Series are optional informal and interactive presentation by Cornell faculty members who are teaching multidisciplinary University Courses. This event takes place on the Sunday of orientation in the Carol Tatkon Center and all are invited.
Learning Where You Live courses are an academic living-learning initiative of primarily one- and two-credit courses taught on North (and West) Campus during both the fall and spring semesters that is focused on bringing faculty and undergraduates together to enhance intellectual life in the residential communities.
One of your courses may be in the Dining Discussion Program, which supports students and their faculty to engage in mealtime discussions. The program offers students the opportunity to explore academic and intellectual interests related to course subjects; enhance their understanding of course materials; and become comfortable interacting with faculty outside of the classroom. The program also provides faculty with the opportunity to become better acquainted with their students.
Through the Student Community Interaction Project, you may also get the opportunity to interact with one of the Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellows, distinguished members of the Cornell faculty who have been recognized for their sustained record of outstanding, effective, and inspiring teaching of undergraduate students at Cornell University.
