2016 New Student Orientation & International Student Orientation Information:

Welcome to Eastman! The Eastman School of Music New Student Orientation and International Student Orientation Program is over a week of mandatory programs. New Student Orientation is critical to a student’s first year experience as it makes a substantial impact on welcoming and connecting students and their families to the institution, as well as facilitates a smooth transition to college life at Eastman. New Student Orientation introduces our students to the wide array of academic, social, intellectual, leadership, and cultural experiences available via a series of intentionally designed events, activities, workshops, and opportunities. During New Student Orientation, students will:

  • Receive extensive academic advising, take placement exams, and register for fall classes;
  • Learn about the academic, residential, and co-curricular environment;
  • Meet other new students and make friends;
  • Participate in fun events and explore ways to get involved in student life;
  • Meet faculty, staff, and administrators;
  • Discuss important first-year college issues;
  • Connect with a “Big Sib” and other Eastman Orientation Crew volunteers;
  • Learn about campus life from current students;
  • Learn your way around Eastman, River Campus, and Rochester.

After participating in New Student Orientation students will be able to:

  • Complete necessary tasks in preparation for being an Eastman student;
  • Locate, navigate, and utilize on and off campus resources;
  • Establish personal and professional connections with peers, staff, and faculty;
  • Identify opportunities to get involved and become engaged in the campus community in meaningful ways.
