Phase T.W.O. New Student Orientation will take place prior to the beginning of classes.  We require all students, face-to-face and remote, to attend programs before the fall semester. We have scheduled all programs to be held virtually (unless specifically listed) to accommodate the various learners this semester. These programs will continue the conversations and enhance the connections made during the July & August sessions to prepare you for the start of classes and your time at Purchase College. Phase T.W.O. Orientation promotes learning through faculty, staff and peer led seminars, workshops, and educational and social programming. 

All zoom links will be posted and calendar invites will be created prior to the event start.
