|New students on campus for orientation
RELEASED: June 10, 2004
DANVILLE, KYThis week Centre welcomed members of the Class of 2008 to campus for summer orientation.
The incoming freshmen attended sessions dealing with class scheduling, expectations and succeeding in college. During the sessions, new students met with Centre faculty, staff, advisors and peers who counseled them on how to ensure a positive Centre experience.
Orientation also gave students a chance to meet other incoming freshmen and begin long-lasting friendships.
Matt Kowaleski of Springboro, Ohio, says he was impressed by the hospitality and attention he received during his visit.
And students aren't the only ones getting acquainted with college. Centre also hosts sessions for parents.
For incoming freshmen, this experience is just a small sample of why they came to the College.
"Centre offers everything that I want for the next four years," says Lizzy Miller of Denver. "Centre is going to help me balance my academic and social life."
Amy Raghuraman of West Chester, Ohio, was attracted to Centre because of the accessible professors and the Centre Commitmentwhich guarantees to all students who meet the College's academic expectations an internship, study abroad, and graduation in four concurrent years, or the College will provide up to a year of additional study tuition-free (http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/publications/centrecommitment.html).
"I like the small classes and personal attention from the professors," she says. "I also like the fact that they guarantee that you can get out in four years."
Freshman orientation will continue June 18-19.
