SWOSU Gearing Up for June 14 New Student Orientation Session


Erica Benda and Brandy
SWOSU student Erica Benda of Yukon and Brandy the Bulldog will be helping high school seniors who attend the June 14 New Student Orientation at SWOSU. Benda, who is majoring in chemistry, is a second-year orientation leader on the Weatherford campus.

Southwestern Oklahoma State University will host a New Student Orientation session for high school seniors on Monday, June 14, in the Fine Arts Center on the Weatherford campus.

Other sessions for high school seniors who plan to attend SWOSU are planned July 22 and August 13.  SWOSU fall classes begin August 18.

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 residence hall tours.

Families are also invited to attend the Family Orientation that runs concurrently with the student orientation.  Both sessions begin at 9 a.m. The families 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 the Dawg Zone. Youngsters can color and make crafts, use Wi-Fi laptops, watch movies and play Nintendo wii.
