Jordie King – Orientation Training Week

The last week in May the Orientation Team met every day from 9-3 to train and educate themselves for the upcoming Orientation Season. Everyone was in good spirits (especially since lunch was provided everyday). Throughout the week the team heard from several department heads on campus and gathered information to take to the incoming Freshmen and their parents at Orientation.
One of my favorite guest speakers was from the Degree Works program. This is a brand new program and the incoming Freshmen will be the first to try it out. This program will allow students to look up their projected Graduation date, calculate their GPA, and look up classes they need to take and when they need to take them. This is going to be like a one-stop-shop for students, and I’m sure will answer a lot of questions they would normally have to ask elsewhere. I think the incoming Freshmen will be very excited to learn about this. I only wish it was around when I was a Freshman.
