Campus Champion

Greg Diller ’07 is ready for Orientation, which kicks off this week with an overnight opportunity for the first time since 2019. “Each Orientation is a completely different and wonderful experience,” said Greg, coordinator of transition programs. Advisement and Transition is ready for its biggest annual event after busy weeks of Orientation Assistant training and returning to renovated offices in Memorial Library. Greg has helped lead four Orientations and he serves as a trusted resource for transfer students, who make up over 30% of incoming Red Dragons. Active with the New York State Transfer and Articulation Association, he is the organization’s immediate past president after serving a three-year term.
