New Student Programs

Begin your journey here!  The Office of New Student Programs is your key to a successful start as a new member of the Geneseo community.  Our programs are designed to introduce you to the many academic and co-curricular opportunities that our campus has to offer.

Students in all majors enjoy the tradition of a liberal arts education including the breadth and depth of study, critical thinking, understanding of people and cultures beyond their own communities, and taking responsibility for their own well-being.

As members of a residential academic community, first-year students benefit from proximity to faculty and staff and opportunities to develop as leaders and socially responsible citizens.

For incoming freshmen and transfer students, your introduction to Geneseo begins with our Orientation program, which takes place prior to the start of classes either in January for spring admits or June and July for fall admits. 

On behalf of the New Student Programs team, we look forward to meeting you!
