New Student Orientation Session II rocks the stage
It's a time of learning, making new friends, letting go—for both new students and their parents—and finding one's feet as they enter a new pathway toward the future. New Student Orientation, Session II, took place July 25–26, with nearly 150 members of the Class of 2017 and transfer students—as well as their family members—in attendance. The program's intention is introduction and acclimation: introduce students to the College, to their faculty members, to the collegiate academic experience, to their classmates, and to new possibilities for their lives; and acclimate students and parents to their new relationship with each other and to the places, people, and programs that will pervade their next four years. Sara Beth Terry, director of student orientation and student activities, led this year's upper-level student Orientation Leaders in weeks of planning, practicing, and preparing for both orientation groups (the first members of the Class of 2017 attended Orientation I in June), and every walk of the campus
community pitched in to insure that students and families felt welcome, were excited about the expedition upon which they will embark, and were pointed in the right direction. If life is a highway, as the popular rock song states, Huntingdon's newest students are equipped with roadmaps for this portion of their journey.
