SWOSU Hosting Final New Student Orientation Session on August 13


New Student Orientation Leaders
From the looks of this picture, it's time for the SWOSU students who serve as New Student Orientation leaders to get back to class. SWOSU classes start August 18 on the Weatherford and Sayre campuses. The NSO leaders have been assisting over 900 new freshmen who will begin classes at SWOSU this fall.  

Southwestern Oklahoma State University will host the last New Student Orientation session for high school seniors this Friday, August 13, in the Fine Arts Center on the Weatherford campus.

SWOSU fall classes begin August 18.

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.

Students need to bring photo identification and their final high school transcript (if they have not done so), any college transcripts with concurrent hours, and any other additional paperwork, such as, AP test scores, updated ACT scores, and health forms.

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.

Any student who attends NSO on August 13 may move into the residence halls that day. They may check in to the residence hall they were assigned no earlier than 2 p.m.

Students may register for freshman orientation by calling New Student Orientation at 580.774.3233 or by going online at www.swosu.edu/admissions/nso and clicking on "Register for Orientation."
