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
