2014 Orientation

Orientation is an essential and exciting program that introduces new students to all aspects of campus life. It is an opportunity to meet with administrators and current students who serve as orientation leaders in easing your transition to Manhattan College. All new undergraduate students must attend one of the orientation sessions. Students are required to submit their enrollment deposit in order to register for orientation.
