Undergraduate Orientation

FALL 2020

Even though we wish we could see you in person, we’ve prepared an interactive online experience that will bring the spirit of LIM directly to you.

Students entering in Fall 2020 will enjoy a series of Orientation activities online throughout the summer — including group talks and meetups with Student Mentors, and info. sessions about our academic majors, global programs, and fashion careers.

Below is a look at everything that’s happening for you this summer!


Discover Your Career Brand: Live Series
Tuesday's at 7 p.m. (EST) starting July 7, 2020

Imagine your dream career…. What are you doing? What are you saying? What difference are you making?

This summer, LIM’s Career Coaches will help you take the first steps to turn your career dreams into college reality.

In the 6-week mini-course Discover Your Career Brand, you’ll explore your true passions and purpose, start setting goals, and begin mapping out which campus activities, courses, and internships can help you achieve your dream career.

You’ll also learn how to create a starter resume and establish your online presence—setting up the technology and platforms (like your e-portfolio and LinkedIn) to showcase yourself to potential employers and find your first internship.

Your “career brand” is much more than a resume. It’s how your resume comes to life. So, set yourself up for success—and get a head-start on the college-to-career journey that defines what it means to be an LIM student!

Virtual New Student Orientation: Kickoff Event
Monday, June 22 at 1 p.m. (EST)

We’re having a special guest at our first big event.... Celebrity Fashion Stylist Dennis Kenney! He's dressed Hollywood actresses, Broadway performers, and TV personalities for the The Oscars, Tonys, Video Music Awards, and Met Gala. He's also the founder of NONDK, a streetwear line that promotes unity and diversity.

  • Ask Dennis what it's like to work in fashion -- and how to get your foot in the door
  • Talk to your new classmates -- and get to know more of them
  • Ask current students for advice on what to bring, where to eat, how to get around NYC...whatever's on your mind.

Make sure you don't miss it!


Discover Your Career Brand: Information Session
Tuesday, June 23 at 7 p.m. (EST)

"Career branding" is more than just your resume. As a college student, you'll need to find ways to showcase your talents and stand out in a digital world. In this one-of-a-kind mini course, you will create a launch pad to build your brand throughout your academic, campus and career development journey.

Virtual Roommate Mixer 
Tuesday, June 23 at 8 p.m. (EST)

If you're planning to live in our residence hall, one thing is for sure: You want a roommate who shares your interests -- and respects your need for sleep and a (reasonably) clean bathroom. So, to help you find the right match, we're holding Virtual Roommate Mixers. We'll break into small groups to talk about everything from what music and Netflix shows you like, to your cleaning schedule and study habits.
