Golden Eagle Orientation

Welcome to the Golden Eagle Family! This is where your journey starts. Take flight! 



Golden Eagle Orientation is designed to help you:

  • Make connections with other new students and peers
  • Understand your course schedule and academic requirements
  • Find out how you can become involved on campus and make your mark
  • Learn about resources that will support you both on and off campus
  • Understand important policies and procedures

All orientation sessions are held during the month of July. Sessions are overnight, designed to give our incoming students the best possible introduction to life at Brockport. Even if you will be commuting to campus or live in Brockport, the overnight experience is mandatory.

Last Chance Orientation

Last Chance Golden Eagle Orientation (GEO) is exactly what it sounds like; your “last chance” to get connected with all of the resources, supports, and engagement available at SUNY Brockport before the start of the semester!

At Last Chance GEO, you will have the opportunity to hear from various offices on campus dedicated to your success, meet with an academic advisor, and connect with other incoming Golden Eagles, as well as some of our current students!

We know the transition to college life can involve families and friends, and Golden Eagle Orientation is designed to help these groups too! Students attending an overnight session are permitted to bring up to two (2) adult guests. Guests will attend separate, but concurrent information sessions designed to ease your transition into life at Brockport. Accommodations will be offered on campus for an additional fee.


If you have any questions about Golden Eagle Orientation, travel concerns, accommodation needs, or if you will be unable to attend one of these sessions, please contact us at
