New Student Orientation

Our New Student orientation is designed to offer incoming students an opportunity to gain as much information about Menlo as possible, make them feel comfortable and at home.

Congratulations on your admission to Menlo College. You are embarking on an exciting journey of learning and self-development, and we are so happy you chose the Menlo community to share it with you!

The Student Affairs Office is here to help support and guide you during your journey of learning. Our goal is to provide a fulfilling quality of life beyond the classroom, and to offer you opportunities for personal and professional growth. Activities on campus and in the residence halls are intended to complement and enhance your college experience. To this end we offer a wide range of programs and services for you to get involved.

To find out more about how we can partner with you for your success at Menlo College, you are invited to attend our Spring Orientation Welcome on Monday, January 5, starting at 11am. This is an opportunity for you to learn how to navigate Menlo, and to meet some key members of our community who can help you succeed.

While those of you who are transferring into Menlo may feel that these activities are geared to the first time college student, we want to assure you that we planned the program with your needs in mind too! Additionally, our commuter students have unique circumstances and it’s important for you to feel this is also your home. Please let us know if you will have parents or partners join you so that we can plan accordingly; brunch will be served at 11:30am following our welcome address. RSVPs are required by January 2, 2015; please call 650.543.3779 or email

Congratulations again on choosing Menlo for your continued educational journey! We look forward to meeting and working with you!
