Letter from Dean of Students


Dear St. Joseph’s  Student:

I am delighted to welcome you to St. Joseph’s College.  I am very proud of our students, faculty and staff and I am certain that you will understand why as you learn more about St. Joseph’s, its programs and its future.  As a private institution of higher education, we are committed to excellence in all that we do.  The student body reflects many diverse backgrounds and cultures.  Our faculty and staff are an extremely dedicated and caring group of people who pride themselves on offering students personal attention and support.

Please see the information on this website regarding the New Student Orientation, which has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 26, 2014.  It is very important that you attend this special Orientation session.  Attendance at this event is the key to your success and acclimation to the life at St. Joseph’s College.  As you can see from the schedule, there will be opportunities for you to meet with your classmates as well as your Freshman Year Experience facilitators.  You will have the opportunity to enjoy some great activities with your peers.  The Student Life staff and our Student Leaders are eagerly awaiting your arrival.  You will also have the opportunity to win some great prizes and will receive some generous free gifts.  ID Cards and Parking Tags will be available at the end of the day, too.

One of the ways you will be introduced to College Life will be through your enrollment in Freshman Year Experience.  This extended orientation program, held every Tuesday and Friday in the fall, will help you adjust to your new role as a College student.  You will be assigned to a group on one of these days in conjunction with your SJC 100 class.

We are looking forward to meeting you during Orientation.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions by calling Ms. Magie Hassanin at 631.687.4595.  I thank you and wish you the best of luck in your exciting future at St. Joseph’s College.
