Welcome to Orientation at Fisher!
Saturday, September 3 - Tuesday, September 6
Fisher's Orientation program is designed to help you make a smooth transition to college. You'll learn about campus life, student activities, academic expectations, campus facilities and support services, and make lots of new friends!
In short, Orientation is the most significant community-building activity you can take part in at Fisher. Current Fisher students serve as "Orientation Leaders" and are anxious to meet you.
Orientation is required for all new full-time Fisher students, both commuters and residents. It's a fun-filled time for you to become acquainted with the College and to take part in activities with your new classmates, many of whom will become your friends for life.

Why you choose Fisher?
Welcoming community feeling, and small personal classroom sizes.
Favorite Fisher memory?
The day I realized my roommate is just as big a nerd as I am. I was super nervous that I would be the nerdy one and he would be a jock until he asked me if I liked Pokemon. I told him not only do I like it, but I still play it! We ended up having a lengthy conversation about video-games, superheroes, and tv shows. We’ve been roomies ever since then, and can’t wait to live with him post graduation.
What do you love about orientation?
Getting to know freshmen and making them feel welcome. I still love to keep in touch with a few of my freshmen to hear how they’re doing, what they’ve gotten involved with on campus, and life in general!
What should freshman expect?
A lot of fun, valuable information, corny jokes, and a passion for Buffalo Sports
One random fact about yourself:
One life goal of mine is to own my own used book store

Favorite thing to do in Rochester: Stay up late with friends and go grab a garbage plate! Nothing says college better than eating greasy food with awesome friends at an obscene hour of the night.
