Welcome New Students!

Posted by ncarter | 08/4/2010 04:57 AM

Paine College is proud to welcome the Class of 2014. August 4th marks the beginning of a new journey for hundreds of Paine College freshman. For an entire week, students from around the country will walk through their "Gateway to the World" as students at Paine.

The New Student Orientation Program is designed to both acquaint students with Paine College and to welcome them to their new community. During the eight-day program taking place August 4-9, 2010, students will participate in a wide variety of workshops and activities and will have the opportunity to meet and get to know many of their classmates, faculty, and college administrators.

More specifically, students will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the campus, meet with an academic advisor to finalize their schedules and learn about the vibrant academic life at the College, attend workshops focusing on campus life, and join the fun at social events planned each day. Through a service program, students will also have the opportunity to begin learning more about and getting involved in the greater Paine College community.

Family members of incoming freshman are invited to participate in informative sessions, fellowship and memorable ceremonies.
