New Student Programs supports the process of acclimating all entering students and their families to life at Binghamton through student centered, comprehensive programs that serve as the cornerstone on which academic success and positive social transitions are built. Orientation programs introduce all new students to the University's diverse educational opportunities and resources; provide structured opportunities for interaction with peers, continuing students, faculty, and staff; and create in students a sense of their place in Binghamton's history as contributing members of the community. Orientation establishes the relationship between families and the University and offers support in transitioning to life with a student in college.
