New Student Programs

Zoom - Clocktower - 2

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. We are dedicated to creating an informative and engaging New Student Orientation, followed by programs and services throughout students’ first year offered by the Tatkon Center for First-Year Students.

Make the Most of Your First Year

Welcome new undergraduates! Join the Tatkon staff for a panel discussion with time for Q&A on Tuesday, January 25 at 8pm via Zoom on making the most of your first year at Cornell.
