CNCC orientation set for Aug. 22

Science Instructor Liz Johnson advises a student at last year's orientation at CNCC. "It's a great time to get to know my students," she said.

CNCC is set to welcome one of the biggest classes in recent history on Aug. 22. Orientation is designed to help new students become familiar with processes, procedures and the people who are passionate about helping students succeed at CNCC. Students will also confirm their class schedules and have the opportunity to register for classes if they still need to.

New students at last year's orientation event at CNCC wait for a session to learn about using the college's computer network for classwork.

The open house-styled event is planned with short information sessions on topics like accessing the college computer network, learning about financial aid, and discovering what resources and benefits are available to CNCC students. Faculty and staff will be on hand to advise students and welcome them to the new year. Students will take a self-guided tour of the campus.

"Even if you haven't fully decided to come to CNCC this year, we encourage you to come to orientation," said Orientation Director Desiree Moore. "It's a great day to find out how easy and economical it is to enroll at CNCC. It's a one-stop shop, with financial aid, advising and registration all together."

The best time to arrive is between 9 and 9:30 a.m., so you can attend the workshop sessions, meet with your advisor, and still have time to take the tour. And then plan to stay for the Free Community Barbeque at noon.
