Student Life

A celebration of these backgrounds allows students to truly experience a variety of cultures and traditions enriching their own personal experiences.

New Student Orientation

^ TOP

Endicott provides two opportunities to assist newly admitted students and their families in the transition to higher education academics, campus life, and the Endicott community.  The Endicott experience begins with Summer Orientation where new students and their families participate in an intensive, overnight orientation program. The summer orientation is designed to assist students in building relationships critical to their success at the College. Workshops and interactive sessions engage students and their families in academic and co-curricular activities, thus introducing new students to Endicott’s standards and expectations for academic progress and community involvement. Students are also introduced to their summer reading assignment which is designed to unite them in a shared intellectual discourse. Finally, orientation gives the College community an opportunity to answer student and family questions and concerns before the academic year starts.

Prior to the start of classes, Fall Orientation assists students with the transition to academic life on campus. During the fall orientation, students meet with faculty and staff to enhance their understanding of their respective schools and programs. Students will also have the opportunity to review their schedules and address any questions or concerns before the first day of classes. Orientation concludes with participation in a traditional Convocation ceremony.
