Fall Orientation 2020
Fall Orientation will be held from August 29–September 1. Due to COVID-19 and wanting to ensure the safety of all our Endicott community members, there will be four different orientation schedules that will run concurrently so we can keep things socially distant. Your Orientation Leader will be in contact with you for your specific schedule. Be sure to contact them with any questions regarding orientation.
