In August, the Center for Advising and Academic Success (CAAS) and the Office of Recruitment and Admissions will be collaborating on some in-person engagement activities for our incoming freshmen. CLASS 100: CSI’s Lessons and Advisement in Student Success is an introduction to the fundamentals of college life. CLASS prepares incoming freshmen to successfully transition from high school to college and teaches each student how to get the most out of the First-Year Experience.

Students will be invited to CLASS after successfully completing the virtual CSI Advisement and Registration Training (vCART) and virtual New Student Orientation (vNSO). It will take place in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) on the following dates:

  • Thursday, Aug. 4 from 8:30am – 2:00pm
  • Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 8:30am – 2:00pm
  • Thursday, Aug. 11 from 8:30am – 2:00pm

We are planning a Student Services Fair in the 1P Atrium from noon to 1:00pm. If your department/program would like to reserve a table and participate in the Fair, please contact Jesse Rodriguez, New Student Programs Coordinator, by Wednesday, July 20. Ms. Rodriguez may be reached at or 718.982.2593.  

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
