Has your office hired any new professionals this past year who are either new to Admissions or new to SUNY?  SUNYCAP is hosting our annual SUNY Admissions Orientation Thursday, September 7th to Friday, September 8th, beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown-Albany, 

The SUNY Admissions Orientation is designed to bring new hires together to meet other new colleagues; learn about SUNY and the processing system; hear best practices for high school visits and college fairs, discuss travel tricks of the trade and to network with other professionals. The sessions are interactive with an emphasis on engaging the group in conversations while providing valuable information from seasoned professionals and representatives from SUNY administration. SAO includes a tour of the processing center at SUNY System Administration.

There is a $50 charge for the SUNY Admissions Orientation; registration can be done online here.
