Tuesday, January 10th from 6 - 8:30 pm


Wednesday, January 11th from 6 - 8:30 pm

In-person events will take place on Wednesday, January 18th.

Students are encouraged to check their College email for additional information and links to the various sessions.


Through this Orientation course, I learned how special Herkimer College really is! The orientation course is both informative and applicable regardless of whether you live on campus or not, or whether you are a traditional or non-traditional student. Herkimer has so many support systems in place to assist in making the student’s experience a positive one. Everyone’s “door is open” to help students be successful, from professors and advisors to 24/7 hotlines when someone is in crisis.
