About Us

The Tatkon Center for New Students supports all new students during their transition to Cornell University and through their first year. As professional staff, we coordinate a comprehensive orientation program for all new undergraduate students, including a welcome program for their families. The transition to university life takes time. We are dedicated to creating an informative and engaging orientation, followed by programs and services throughout students' first year. Come visit us at our Hub, located on the first floor of the Robert Purcell Community Center (101, 103, 105), staffed by our student staff, Tatkon Peer Leaders (or TPLs) who are upper-level students trained and ready to support students in guiding and navigating University resources.
