Spring Student Orientation — 2021

To ensure the safety of all of our campus community during these unprecedented times, ESF has made the decision to hold Orientation online.

Please be patient with us as we want to provide the most helpful information as possible. More details will be available on this website as they become available. Information will also be emailed to your SYR.EDU email so you know how to access this information.
