ORIENTATION RESOURCES

CAYUGA WELCOMES YOU!

Parents, family, and friends play an essential role in a student’s journey through college toward graduation. At Cayuga Community College, we are dedicated to providing students with diverse learning opportunities to discover their passions and advance their personal and professional growth.

We hope you find the following resources and information helpful as you assist your student in beginning their educational experience here at Cayuga!

PARENTS, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS ORIENTATION

Our Parents, Family, and Friends (PFF) session will discuss the rights and support parents, family, and friends have available to them to assist our students’ success in and out of the classroom. This is a great session that emphasizes the roles of support networks in students’ growth and success.

CAYUGA INSPIRES YOU TO GROW

Consistent with our desire to provide an environment that facilitates learning, Cayuga’s academic programs are grouped in schools that offer students the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors and peers. Schools bring cohesion to academic programs, enabling students to bond and form friendships that last a lifetime.

Cayuga Community College provides a variety of educational opportunities that allow students to “learn by doing,” connecting classroom content with real-world situations and reflecting on the experience. As a result, students at Cayuga obtain a deeper understanding of their discipline, are more prepared for service and leadership in their careers and communities, and develop critical thinking skills. Cayuga is Student Oriented: Faculty members help students learn by emphasizing active, collaborative student learning techniques.
