Summer 2021 ORIENTATION
Virtual Orientation Dates Coming Soon! Please continue checking this website or with your Admissions Advisor for updates.
Please note: Virtual Orientation will be a mix of pre-recorded sessions, live presentations, and group or departmental meetings. Schedules will be made available to students on the first day of Orientation. It is recommended that each student dedicate between 2-4 hours each week for Orientation assignments and meetings, as well as spending at least a small portion of each day logging in to the online platform (for emails, notifications, etc.).
Our virtual Orientation will also include optional activities to introduce students to a wide variety of resources, but also help prepare them for the rigors of classwork.
Should you have any questions regarding the Orientation process, please feel free to reach out to your Admissions Advisor or the Orientation Planning Committee (NYOrientation@amda.edu)
