Orientation Issue

Welcome to Binghamton University!

If you are new to the school and want to learn more or are just curious about BU life, this issue is for you.

In our News section, you can find articles about the best places, people and resources to know, while also recapping our news cycle from the 22-23 academic year. The Arts & Culture section highlights the fun activities and food spots on- and off-campus. The latest updates on BU athletics and some of our great athletes are featured in our Sports section, and our Opinion editors, along with the Editorial Board, have shared their advice for entering college.

As the new academic year starts, and we welcome all the BU students — new and old — we hope this issue provides guidance, support and excitement about the year ahead.
