Gettysburg College's Extended Orientation program is titled Charting Your Course, or CYC. It is designed to empower students to be Gettysburg Great as they learn about, engage in, and plan their Gettysburg experience.

First-year students will participate in CYC events ranging from a public presentation by our Common Read book author Emily St. John Mandel, to community meetings, to Twilight Hour. A wide range of elective events are also available as part of the program.

As an added bonus, attending and participating in CYC sessions will offer first-years the greatest opportunity to have their choice of housing for their sophomore year.
