New Student Orientation and Move-In


Riverdale, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent will welcome back members of the Class of 2021 for move-in day and part two of New Student Orientation from Thursday, August 24, 2017 through Sunday, August 28, 2017. Residence halls will be open for move-in for new students from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 24.

The Class of 2021 previously visited campus for part one of Orientation, which invited students to attend various one-day information sessions in June. Part two of Orientation is designed to further introduce new students to the academic, cultural, and social aspects of student life at the Mount. During the two-part Orientation program, students have the opportunity to meet with future classmates, as well as with current student leaders to get the inside scoop on life at the Mount. Students also create their fall semester class schedule, obtain their College IDs, meet faculty and academic support staff, and learn about residence life and commuter life, student clubs and organizations, dining services, campus safety and security, student employment, and more.

New Student Orientation also offers exclusive events for first-year students, including a welcome festival, a performance by stand-up comedian Adam Grabowski, and trips to Target to buy school supplies. The Mount will also host trips to a Yankees game, bowling, and to a Broadway show—students can choose to see The Book of Mormon, School of Rock, or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

This year, 18 Orientation Leaders have welcomed the Class of 2021 and their families to campus. Meet the Mount’s 2017 Orientation Leaders here. For more information about the College’s New Student Orientation, move-in, and orientation for long-distance and transfer students read more.
