Vaughn College Fall 2014 Orientation

The new student and family orientation program is the beginning of an ongoing process that facilitates individual students' and their family members/supporters' transition into the learning environment of the Vaughn College community. Orientation provides the foundation for the overall college experience through opportunities for social interaction, intellectual challenges, cultural exchanges, and service in the community.

The orientation experience strives to emulate and espouse Vaughn's core values of multiculturalism, internationalism, service and academic excellence. It is to this end that the orientation program strives to provide practical information, familiarity with academic expectations, and an overview of their responsibility as a college community member. Additionally, the orientation program will provide participants with information regarding the resources that are available to support the growth and development of our students. Finally, this experience is meant to be an inclusive environment for all Vaughn students and in keeping with that goal, the experience provides additional attention and services for some of Vaughn's unique populations.

Completing the form below will ensure that we have a spot for you at this summer's orientation program. We will introduce you to new friends, faculty and campus life, as well as get you started on your journey to a great college experience.

A tailored program will also take place for parent and family members as well as siblings, and they are strongly encouraged to join us for the parent and family orientation program.

If you have any questions or need further information, feel free to contact the orientation staff via email at or you can contact the office of student affairs at 718.429.6600, ext. 221. For directions to the campus, please click here.
