Explore UAlbany programs are specifically designed to help engage and orient new students to their campus and a new way of living!

These programs are kicked off at the beginning of the fall semester with our Great Dane Beginnings Explore UAlbany event during Opening Weekend. New students participate in lectures about engaging and cutting-edge research presented by our outstanding faculty members, receive their student handbook, and are entered to win exciting prizes.        

Fall Fridays are sessions are held on Friday afternoons in the fall semester. These programs connect students with both faculty and staff and on-campus resources that they can use to excel in college by becoming a conscientious and well-informed Great Dane!
