New Student Orientation

Welcome Future St. John’s Students and Families 

Orientation is a time where our University family comes together to welcome you to our community. During orientation, you will have a great opportunity to establish relationships with your academic deans, advisors, faculty and several University departments.

You will also learn how to find your way around campus, as well as how to take advantage of our on-campus resources. Most importantly, you will have a chance to meet fellow incoming students and current student leaders who you will build friendships that can last forever.

Please keep in mind that Orientation is a REQUIRED program for all new students.

New Student Orientation on the Queens campus takes place on Tuesday, January 20, 2015.
