We know you will find this not only to be a positive first step as you begin your Medaille experience but an enjoyable one as well.
Orientation at Medaille College assists new students and their families in their successful transition to our institution. New students will be exposed to the broad educational opportunities, both academic and co-curricular, thus developing a holistic student experience. Orientation promotes a heightened awareness and respect for diversity and will increase students’ awareness of the interconnectedness of the campus and Buffalo communities.
Our Goals are to contribute to the intellectual growth and personal and educational goals of the incoming student and to expose students to leadership and the development of healthy behaviors, interpersonal relationships and social responsibility.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
