On June 15, close to 300 Manhattan College students from the class of 2015 arrived on campus to participate in a two-day orientation, which is the second of four orientations hosted by the College. The first full day of orientation commenced with welcoming remarks from Brennan O’Donnell, Ph.D., president of the College, and informational sessions on the school of arts, business, education, engineering and science for students to learn more about the variety of academic programs and major options. Students spent the remainder of the afternoon hearing about student life, commuter and residence life, and the Lasallian family at Manhattan College.

After dinner in Locke’s Loft, students had the chance to attend a few presentations on volunteer opportunities available through the College’s campus ministry and social action department, study abroad, student activities, student government, performing arts, and the Arches, the College’s new learning and living program. The evening events wrapped up with dodgeball, volleyball, basketball, board games and T-shirt tie dying.

The final day of orientation, students met with their academic advisors and ended the day with a barbecue.
