Orientation

Congratulations, and Welcome to CALS!

These next few weeks will likely be exciting and stressful, and while Cornell is a big place, CALS makes it easy to connect. The CALS Student Services team is here to help you through the process, both now and once you arrive on campus. From this point forward, here’s how you get and stay in the know with CALS:

In the next few weeks, you will receive an email from us with details about the orientation process. After those initial messages, your information stream is Chatter – an online community that provides critical information about course enrollment, your major, and connecting with your advisor. It will also be a great way to meet other CALS students! You will be required to log in to Chatter, but that is an easy step, and the instructions will be included in the email.

The University Orientation schedule provides a complete overview of all the programs including CALS specific events for students throughout orientation week. Be sure to check Chatter frequently as you don’t want to miss any important orientation information. There is even a mobile app that makes this easy!

Please watch for more information that will be sent to you directly through email and then Chatter. We intend to support you through the entire process.
