If you're coming to Ithaca College next fall, you've probably marked a few days on your calendar for summer orientation. But what can you expect from the program? We checked in with orientation leader (and Fuse writer!) Conor Harrington '13, who gave us the inside scoop on plans for the summer.
IC's summer orientation is designed to help make the transition to college a little easier. Harrington says the two-and-a-half-day program is jam-packed with information, as well as social activities and games, plus a few surprises along the way.

If you're still a little a nervous, that's normal -- we've all been there before. IC's orientation leaders are here to answer any questions and help you in the right direction.
"I would encourage people to put themselves out there and get involved in orientation," Harrington advised. "You're going to be meeting so many new people in the next few months, and it's good to get started early. You'll be starting off on the right note."
