Undergraduate Orientation for Newly Enrolled Students Fall 2020

Fall 2020 Orientation will be your introduction to the Hotel School and Cornell University. You will move in, get settled, and meet your student services advisors and Orientation Leaders. We hold many events; some are academic and welcome you to Cornell’s intellectual community, others allow you to explore Cornell, and some are focused on meeting new people through fun and social events. Get excited about beginning your Cornell School of Hotel Administration journey!

Beginning in the spring this site will highlight key information, let you complete and check the status of forms, and track university requirements, to ensure your smooth transition to Cornell.
