First-Year Student orientation is the first step in making a smooth transition to life at SUNY Oneonta. During our in-person orientation sessions, you will be introduced to SUNY Oneonta’s academic and behavioral expectations; exposed to college values, traditions, and social opportunities; as well as connecting with other new students, returning students, faculty and staff members.

The New Student Services Team oversees student peer educators, who we call New Student Mentors. These peer mentors serve freshmen and transfer students. Check out the New Student Mentors at the New Student Success Series, a series of events and programs designed with freshmen in mind.

The New Student Success Series (NS3) is available for all new students who are looking to expand their knowledge of campus resources. The programs are held throughout the first few weeks of each semester.
