New Student Orientation


Our newest Blackbirds are invited to kick start their time at LIU Brooklyn with an unforgettable experience including the best of New York City's Attractions, Broadway Shows, and Sporting events. As part of our new student orientation, students will be able to select from six signature New York City outings. These orientation sessions will include a brief campus orientation followed by a group trip.

Included in the the Orientation package is an additional ticket to one of our signature events this fall as part of LIU's The City is Our Campus campaign which invites LIU Brooklyn students to attend a number of incredible New York City experiences. 

Orientation serves as the introduction to the LIU Brooklyn campus and some of the amazing opportunities available to you in New York City. The program will give you an overview of the opportunities and resources available to you as a student.

Orientation Leaders will serve as the first point of contact for all incoming students. These friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic upperclassmen will help to provide each new student with the ultimate orientation experience. You will have the chance to choose from one of a number of great one-day Orientation sessions. Along with the Orientation Leaders, LIU Promise Success Coaches, our faculty, and staff will be available to ensure that all your questions are answered.
