New Student Orientation kicks off tomorrow
The first of the New Student Orientation sessions officially kick off tomorrow on campus. The NSO for tomorrow is full, which means that many new students will be touring the campus for the first time. In addition, many of those who attend summer orientation still haven't decided on their college of choice and are "shopping around."
  If you see any students, please show them gracious hospitality by offering a smile, a hello, or lending a helping hand to assist them in the right direction. Next Tuesday, June 14, is the next NSO, which is also full. Other dates for the month of June remain open. For more details, see the NSO web site.

The Board of Trustees meeting will be Thursday at 9 a.m. in the 8th floor board room of Dean B. Ellis Library. Adoption of budgets for all of the ASU campuses will be on the agenda.
