Have a say in how your department works

If you'd like to be more involved in representing the interests of the DSOC undergraduate student body, consider participating in the DSOC undergraduate student organization.

Mentor Program

New to Cornell? Feeling a little uncertain or overwhelmed?

You will be connected with another seasoned student in the department who can assist with transition issues by answering questions, showing you around campus, helping you navigate Cornell processes, or just being a friend.

If you are a new incoming student and would like a mentor or are a DSOC major interested in becoming a mentor, please use this registration link.
