Welcome to our new parents and families! The Office of Student Transitions & Family Programs focuses on developing lasting relationships with students and families that begin at acceptance and extend through Commencement. Parents and families are critical partners in helping us support students throughout their entire Endicott experience. In addition to supporting parents and families, we plan and coordinate Homecoming & Family Weekend, Orientation for new and transfer students, and create programming that focuses on the first-year and second-year experience. Our programs strive to help students find their place in our community, and build the social skills needed to make the most of their Endicott experience.

Applications for spring 2024 study abroad programs are OPEN now through October 15!

We are also offering exciting incentives for those students who choose to study at our partner schools in Madrid or Cork such as:
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging
This month, the Center for Belonging will be having dinners and meetings for our social justice clubs, Showing Up for Racial Justice and Alliance, our club for members and allies of the LGBTQ community, as well as events for all of our Spiritual Life Groups. We will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a movie and taco night on 9/28 and a Dominican dinner in early October. We will also be celebrating the Jewish High Holidays which start on Saturday, 9/15. If your student needs any support with their social or gender identity or spiritual and religious life, please have them come and see Brandi Johnson or Gail Cantor in the Center for Belonging.

The Office of Sustainability would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who helped keep Move-In Day a green event this year! By meticulously sorting trash and recycling, Endicott was able to divert literally tons of waste from the landfill, preventing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting resource circularity. We could not have been so successful in our waste diversion efforts without the helping hands of all Endicott faculty and staff as well as the compliance and gratitude from the students and their families.
Students should be on the lookout for events and programming from the Office of Sustainability within the coming weeks. Details about our annual Sustainability Week in October will be released soon. This is a fun-filled week of on and off-campus activities, competitions, prizes, and free food and beverages.
We have a great new event that is planned for September 29-30.
The DSCVR Sophomore Retreat is an overnight at Essex Woods focused on community building and individual identity growth. College sophomores face unique challenges; they are no longer first-year students getting acclimated to a new environment, yet they are thinking about how their future may unfold before them. If that sounds like you, please join us! DSCVR will leave campus on September 29 at 4:30 p.m. via shuttle bus to arrive at Essex Woods at 5 p.m. We will then return to campus by 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 30. During our time there, we will explore the Sophomore identity through small group breakout sessions, and ropes courses (challenge by choice)! Students will be staying in double rooms with a roommate for the night. This event is open to second-year students only. Because this is the first year of what will be an annual program moving forward, we will only be accepting 19 students. Please fill out this form to reserve your spot. We will send out more information via email, including if you are on our waitlist. If you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to having you!
This event is free. All transportation, meals, and lodging are covered for attendees.
