Schedule and Information

Curious to know what you'll be up to during orientation?

Before orientation, student & professional staff members work to mold a unique, informative and enjoyable experience for all incoming students. All incoming students must attend any session noted as required as attendance will be taken. We highly encourage all students to attend every session we provide, regardless of being required, as it will only enhance and support your transition to Barnard.

This year, we're going green and hosting our schedule book exclusively on the Guidebook app.
Our New Student Orientation Schedule is live and can be accessed the following ways:
1. Download the Guidebook app and search for Barnard New Student Orientation Program.
2. Browse the webpage version of our New Student Orientation schedule.
