New Student and Family Orientation

Information for Families and Supporters

Start Your First Year Off Right with New Student & Family Orientation 

Our orientation program has events, activities, and academic information sessions to acclimate you to the Manhattanville campus. You will have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and students, learn how to get involved on campus, and learn the tips to success.

We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you into the Manhattanville family! 


The Valiant UP information listed below is for students beginning their Valiant journey at Manhattanville in January 2022.

We also look forward to welcoming our incoming Fall 2022 cohort in August! For students who have recently committed to Manhattanville, check back on this page in April for information about Valiant UP! 

It is recommended that all Valiants check their Manhattanville e-mail regularly as communications from the College will be sent there.
