Q: Do I have to pay for this Kick Off?

A: No, our Kick Off is completely free!

Q: Is this Kick Off the same as Farmingdale's Orientation?

A: No, this Kick Off is specific for RAM Students only. You must still complete Farmingdale's Orientation. It is important to note: If you attend this RAM Kick Off you are exempt from completing FSC Orientation's, however you still need to pay the Orientation fee for FSC.

Q: What will I get out of this Kick Off?

A: Our Kick Off is designed to give you a crash course on what it is like to be a Farmingdale Student and a RAM Student. Our program is designed to provide you with next steps on what you need to do to prepare for your first semester of college. As well as meeting your Academic Advisors and Peer Leaders.

Q: Do I have to attend both days of the Kick Off?

A: In order to receive credit for Farmingdale's Orientation, yes. You should attend both days, because different information will be covered through both.
