New students prepare for the Fredonia Experience
Wednesday, June 05, 2013

Nearly 1,500 students will begin their SUNY Fredonia experience by participating in one of six orientation programs designed to familiarize them with the campus, its available services and learning tools, as well as course requirements for general education and individual majors.

"This year's class is again one of the most diverse and academically prolific groups of students in the institution's history. Out of 7,000 applications, only 1,050 freshmen and 450 transfers are chosen, making this class one of Fredonia's most selective,” said Chris Dearth, director of Admissions.

Students will finalize their fall class schedule and meet with a trained academic advisor. First day orientation topics include academic requirements and policies, financial aid information, billing and general advisement. Students can also explore a major if they have not already selected one. The second day consists of a series of small-group workshops and information sessions designed to assist students with planning for the fall semester and adjusting to college life.

Freshmen must attend both days of an orientation session. An optional parent orientation offering a separate program that addresses questions and concerns most frequently expressed by parents of first-year students is also available. Orientation sessions are limited to a specific number of students to ensure personal attention for each student; each session is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students unable to attend a summer orientation session can meet with their advisor and register for classes on Sunday, Aug. 25.

Tentative course schedules can be viewed by students on the Your Connection link on the university home page after June 14. Registration for summer orientation can also be completed online.
