Welcome to the Cornell family!

Family Orientation is intended to introduce you to the resources, staff, and information that will support your student's Cornell journey. Learn more about Cornell Orientation for new students.

Fall Orientation 2022

Cornell is committed to offering resources and support for families of new students. In doing so, we are thrilled to present our Family Orientation program which will occur Monday, August 15 - Wednesday August 17. The program will repeat each day, so if you come in halfway through Day 1, you can always attend the sessions on Day 2.

Families who plan to attend Orientation will need register for the program, where they can select their individual sessions and pick from a number of optional sessions. We will also be hosting our Big Red Welcome Fest - which is a resource fair on Ho Plaza. Registration for families will open in late July.


We are here to make your student's transition to the Cornell community as smooth as possible. Email us at
