SWOSU Implements Orientation Session for Spring Semester New Students


Southwestern Oklahoma State University will hold two fall orientation sessions for incoming spring semester freshmen and transfer students during the month of November on the Weatherford campus.

New Student Orientation has implemented the sessions for Fridays, November 16 and November 30, from 9 a.m. until 12 noon in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom.

Jessica Skinner of the NSO office said students must first apply and be accepted to SWOSU before they can attend one of the orientation sessions. Each of the sessions offers students the chance to meet current SWOSU students and new freshmen/transfer students, visit and enroll with a faculty advisor within the major they have selected and have all their questions answered. The students can also take campus and residence hall tours. 

The students and their family members will meet in the Ballroom at 9 a.m., and the day will conclude at noon when the students pick up their class schedules for the spring semester.

The family and students will not be separated for these two sessions. Financial aid and counseling services will present valuable information to students and their families prior to student advisement. If families plan to bring younger siblings to the session, NSO provides an area to entertain them called The Dawg Zone. The youngsters can color and make crafts, play computers games and watch movies.
