New Student E-Newsletters

The Office of Student Affairs will be sending monthly E-Newsletters with helpful topics and tips to help you prepare for your arrival on campus.


Welcome from the Office of Student Affairs!

We realize that the arrival and orientation period can be confusing, but we are busily preparing to make sure that your transition to ESF is smooth.

ESF's Orientation program introduces new students to ESF, to the broader community, and to the abundant resources that we provide.

ESF students living on and off campus should also be aware that Syracuse University provides online resources for on-campus living and student services, including community living, spiritual services, "taking care of business" items, etc. As an ESF student, you are able to take advantage of both ESF and Syracuse University services.

If you have any questions, contact the Office of Student Affairs:

We look forward to meeting you in August! Get ready for a great college experience at the nation's top ranked environmental school!
