Future Pioneer Sibling Orientation

siblings in the MacKenzie rock climbing wall To assist our students and their families in the transition to college, we offer the future pioneer sibling orientation, open to siblings (ages 7-17) of incoming Alfred State students. Sibling orientation runs concurrent with new student orientation sessions and allows the younger siblings of new students an opportunity to get to know Alfred State, the place where their brother or sister will be living and learning the next few years. The program is facilitated and supervised by current Alfred State students and professional staff members.
