Welcome, Class of 2026!
Welcome to Bard! We are so excited to welcome each of you in person to our Annandale campus. Over the next few weeks you will become connected with new people and places. You will engage in new literature, participate in robust discussions in and outside of your Language & Thinking (L&T) groups, laugh with new friends, and cry because you miss your "old" ones (and your dog)! Don't worry, we have a ton of dogs on campus and I am sure you will have the opportunity to meet them. Orientation at Bard is specifically designed to ensure that you get to know the people who are here to help you. We don't expect you to remember everything, that's what your Peer Counselor (PC) is for! Your PC is a great resource, and you will meet your PC on arrival day. Please look around the Orientation website as frequently as possible because this is where you will get all of the latest and most accurate information about Orientation....We'll of course you have to follow us on IG too -- bardcollegefirstyear. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, August 5! Join the Conversation on Instagram!
