Student orientation has taken many forms over the years with different angles on how to introduce new students to college life and unify the group as a class. For many years a Freshman Camp was held at the Silver Bay YMCA on Lake George. The new students donned their beanies, boarded buses in Troy and were taken as a group to the site. It was very much like a summer camp with outdoor recreation, shared meals and information sessions. Faculty, coaches and other staff members were part of the activities and similar to current events, upperclassmen served as counselors.
Do you have any memories of orientation to share?
