SWOSU New Student Orientation Coming Up April 3


Southwestern Oklahoma State University's second New Student Orientation session for incoming freshmen is Friday, April 3, on the Weatherford campus.

Students must first apply and be accepted to SWOSU before they can attend an orientation session. Each of the orientation sessions offers students the chance to meet current SWOSU students and new freshmen, visit and enroll with a faculty advisor within the major they have selected, and have all their questions answered. They may also take campus and dorm tours.

The students will meet at 9 a.m. in the Fine Arts Center.  The program concludes around 1 p.m. when the students will pick up their class schedules for the fall semester.

Jena Skarda of the NSO program at SWOSU said families are also invited to attend the Family Orientation Session that runs concurrently with the student orientation.  The families will meet in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom to hear presentations from the offices of Residence Life, Financial Aid, Student Health and Counseling Services, Violence Prevention, Auxiliary Services, Campus Police, Dean of Students and Assessment (testing).

If families plan to bring younger siblings to the session, NSO provides an area to entertain them called Pup's Pit. They can color and make crafts, play computers games, and watch movies.
