College welcomes new students with three-day Orientation

New students welcomed at Orientation

With another semester set to begin, Bloomfield College welcomed the newest members of its diverse student body into the institution’s family Aug. 25-27, as the College ushered in the next class of future alumni with a three-day New Student Orientation event.

Combining informational sessions and entertainment programming for both first-year and transfer students, the festivities provided newcomers with a comprehensive and enjoyable experience designed to help acclimate them to their lives on campus. Utilizing the College’s new First Year Parent Engagement program, students and parents were treated to informational sessions led by Bloomfield faculty and staff, covering topics such as how to utilize their email and Blackboard accounts, understanding academic and financial aid policies, and how to plan for career success.

"Orientation is that 'tween' time when students have begun their new careers as college students, creating excitement for their future and enveloping them into the institution's social fabric," vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty Marion Terenzio said of the event. "Students enter this time with a heightened sense of adventure mixed with a little fear, making them highly impressionable in regards their place at the institution and their ability to navigate it. We have designed our Orientation program with this in mind, creating a road map filled with valuable tips and hints so that students will know before they enter their first class the character of the school they have chosen."

To help supplement the educational seminars, newcomers were treated to a host of events sponsored by the College’s Division of Student Affairs and the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement (CSLE), including a Movie Night on the campus Quad, a candle lighting ceremony ushering in the new school year and an all-day trip to Branchville, N.J.’s Stokes State Forrest.

“This program is extremely important for our campus community, because it allows new students to get acclimated to their new college life and help them feel like they are truly a part of our community,” CSLE director Jennifer Troxell said. “It allows them to create relationships with their new classmates through fun and engaging activities, while also giving them great educational resources they can immediately utilize. It helps personalize their college experience, which is one of our biggest goals here at Bloomfield.”
