We look forward to welcoming you! Whether you are a first-year spring admit (FYSA), transfer student, visiting or exchange student, or you studied away in the fall, Winter Orientation will be your introduction to Cornell.

Build your personal orientation program and begin watching "on your own time" orientation programs now!

Live virtual orientation programs take place February 3-7, 2021.

You will receive a welcome email from your Orientation Leader (OL), a trained student mentor who will be your orientation guide, together with a small group of students, on January 26.

Make sure your parents and family members check out our family orientation programs.
