Attention NEW students! Welcome Week just ended, classes are beginning, and it feels like all the information you learned during Orientation just went over your head. Well, don’t worry – that’s where LAUNCH comes in! The purpose of LAUNCH is to prepare our first-year and transfer student communities to successfully launch their Tandon journey. The program spans the crucial first six weeks of the semester and is setup to be drop-in style, so you can come to one program or all ten!
