Centre welcomes new students for orientation
RELEASED: June 15, 2006
DANVILLE, KY—It happens every year like clockwork. Centre College sends a crop of well-educated, ambitious, bright young graduates into the workforce or to top graduate schools and welcomes in a new class of excited, fresh-faced scholars who are seeking new opportunities and a world-class education.
This summer incoming freshman class members have a chance to get their questions answered, take placement tests, sign up for classes and tour the campus well before classes begin in September.
Summer orientation is June 14, 15, 16, and 17. Students have the opportunity to choose from one of the four days.
"The goal of orientation is to help ease the students' transition from high school to college and help them start to think about the personal, social and academic changes they're about to make," says Megan O'Brien, director of student activities. "They also get a chance to ask last minute questions and meet faculty, staff and students."
During the orientation sessions, students meet with faculty, staff, advisors and peers who give them information and help them make decisions to ensure a positive Centre experience. Other sessions deal with class scheduling, expectations and succeeding in college. Students also have the opportunity to enjoy a campus tour, visiting classrooms, dorms and other buildings.For more information, visit the new student orientation webpage.
