Orientation Schedule

Cornell Connects, the official Cornell Orientation app will help you organize your orientation schedule, make your way around campus, and connect with other students. Download the app in the weeks before you arrive on campus. Students have the option to pick up a printed copy of the Cornell Orientation Guide at New Student Check-In when they arrive on campus.


Families of New Students

Parents and family members are important partners in their student's college experience. We will offer a short Family Orientation program to welcome families to Cornell and to introduce them to opportunities and resources on campus. Additional details and dates will be available in the coming months.
