First Year Orientation

Congratulations on your admission to Le Moyne College - home of the Dolphins!

This page is an introduction to all that awaits you at Le Moyne College, and we look forward to meeting you at Summer Welcome and Fall Arrival!



Completing the New Student Checklist will register you for Summer Welcome and provide all the info we need to prepare your class schedule and housing assignment. The deadline for completing is Wednesday, May 19, but we encourage you to complete as soon as possible to have a better chance at your top preferences.

Mandatory for all incoming first year students.

Consider your Summer Welcome as your first official day as a Dolphin, but in a more relaxed, virtual atmosphere. Your session will be filled with meeting new classmates and completing important preliminary information that will enable you to be fully prepared for your fall arrival. When you finish your Summer Welcome session, you can relax, knowing that most of your “business” of becoming a Le Moyne student has been successfully completed.

Register for Summer Welcome

College can be puzzling at first ... new roommates, new classes, new schedules, new experiences. Students enrolled in small-sized living learning communities at Le Moyne find their participation makes all of this newness less overwhelming – and their transition to college life smoother, both academically and socially.

Students in Dorm

This is where your new life as an adult college student truly begins. With car unloaded and books in hand, you now have the opportunity to go out of your comfort zone to begin new friendships, enroll in classes far different from those you took in high school, and live independently and on your own schedule (whether you’re on campus or a commuter). The best thing about arriving at Le Moyne is that you will be able to build the confidence to stretch yourself because you’ll find the people (students, faculty and staff included) and the environment warm and open to you. But that’s probably what you’ve already noticed about this College – now your College.

Your first semester of college is a new experience, not a more intensive extension of high school. It will be natural for you to take time to become adjusted and to transition to this new way of life. Many new opportunities will be available to you. With that comes the independence to set your own schedule, live on your own, commute from home and fill your time with club meetings, athletic events, work on campus and hanging out with friends.

We understand that your first year at Le Moyne is not just an adjustment for you. It’s an adjustment for your family, too. In a sense, parents and families are also joining the Le Moyne community, and we are happy to welcome our parents to the Heights. There are a number of ways that we can work together to provide your student with the appropriate balance of challenge and support necessary to thrive at Le Moyne.
