Congratulations to those of you who have been accepted to Daemen College. The faculty and administration have been busily preparing for your arrival on campus.

We have planned two summer orientation programs which include social activities and exposure to your academic program. You will have the opportunity to meet with a faculty advisor, academic support services personnel and student affairs staff. At first year student orientation you will:

  • Receive your fall course schedule.
  • Meet with your academic department.
  • Receive your Daemen College I.D.
  • Receive your Daemen computer account and be trained on Blackboard, the online site used by all courses for submitting homework assignments, course discussions, and downloading course documents.
  • Be trained on Webadvisor, the College’s online site for registering for classes, viewing your schedule, monitoring your course grades, and much more.
  • Meet your orientation leaders, current students who will share their experiences at Daemen and help mentor you in your first year.
  • Meet other new first year students who will be starting in the Fall.
  • Meet with representatives from each of the academic and student services on campus who will provide you with answers to frequently asked questions and provide you with information on how to best use their services and be successful at the College.
  • Participate in fun activities that acquaint you with the College, the staff, and students.



Every first year student must choose one of two session on either July 17/18 or July 20/21. Attendance is mandatory but there are a limited number of spaces available at each session.


Dress comfortably and casually for all events.

What to Pack

Be sure to remember to pack your sleeping bags/bed linens, blanket, pillow, towels/necessities, alarm clock and a small fan.


A one-time first year student fee of $175 will be added to your fall tuition bill. This fee covers the cost of food, lodging, activities, staffing, and all materials used during first year student events including Summer Orientation, Welcome Back Programs, and first year student programming.
