January Orientation Welcomes New Students

Posted: January 15, 2016

Your first days as a Buffalo State student will be a flurry of activity. Meeting your adviser, confirming your class schedule, buying textbooks, and locating classrooms will be just a few of the things you do as a new student.

January Orientation, Thursday, January 21, welcomes new undergraduate students—first-year and transfers—to campus. The Orientation Office, with the aid of current undergraduate and graduate students, helps new students cross items off their “to-do lists” and introduces them to some of the unique opportunities Buffalo State has to offer.

“Orientation not only introduces new students to Buffalo State’s campus, programs, and services, it also gives them a chance to interact with fellow students, faculty, advisers, and staff,” said Daniel Heims, assistant director of orientation and new student programs.

Students can choose from several different student-success presentations; learn about academic support services, clubs, and organizations; and discover the ins and outs of the school from a student perspective.

Also on the agenda: Workshops on special academic opportunities at Buffalo State; small group activities with student orientation leaders; and an introduction to Buffalo State technology (Banner, Blackboard, Degree Works, and Gmail). Students will also have time to familiarize themselves with the Financial Aid and Registrar's offices, Weigel Health Center, E. H. Butler Library, the Bengal Card Office, and many other college departments.

Orientation is mandatory for all new matriculated students. The event begins at 8:00 a.m. with a continental breakfast for participants in Rockwell Hall. Keynote remarks from Buffalo State Provost Melanie Perreault will follow.

For orientation registration, call (716) 878-5336.
