New Student Orientation

Student Life, Residence Life, and the five academic schools of JTS organize orientation programs for incoming undergraduate and graduate students.

Our goal is to help ease the transition of all new students into the JTS and Morningside Heights community—and greater New York City—through informational, social, and Jewish-life programming.

We look forward to welcoming all new students at the end of August.
