Spring Orientation information will begin January 9, 2015.

As a part of the fall transfer student experience, we invite all transfer students to partake in New Student Orientation.  You will find yourself placed in a group with other transfer students, who will be adjusting to college life at Cornell College.  Throughout New Student Orientation, you will partake in several activities which will help you to learn more about Cornell and the experiences you can anticipate having on campus.  In relation to your academic success, you will meet with your faculty advisor.

In addition to these academic experiences, you will also attend sessions to help you with your success on campus related to other student services, including:

  • tours of the library;
  • ways to get involved and how to succeed in relation to career-engagement; and
  • additional discussions to help with being successful on campus.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, contact Gwen Schimek at gschimek@cornellcollege.edu
