The Mission of New Student Orientation/CLUE is to facilitate the transition of new students into the CSI Community, prepare students for CSI’s educational opportunities and student responsibilities, initiate the integration of new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of CSI, and support new students on their journey to CSI.
Welcome to the College of Staten Island’s New Student Orientation/CLUE website. The Office of New Student Orientation/CLUE is dedicated to assisting students in their first year of college and provides orientation services to new CSI students. These services include: operating an information center for new and prospective students, including a special peer mentoring program called NSOCLUE Mentors, assisting new students during their first advisement and registration sessions, providing introductory new student orientation programs prior to the beginning of each semester, and coordinating the CLUE (College Life Unit Experience) Program. The Office also keeps records on all CLUE program activities and monitors students’ progress towards meetings CSI’s basic new student orientation degree requirement.
