Director's Welcome

Hello students! With midterms and class scheduling on the horizon, we've already begun our planning process to meet our newest prospective students. With our Summer 2014 Orientation Team recently selected, we're excited about the opportunity to get to know a new class of students. That being said, please take the time to review the summer schedule and steps to take in order to prepare yourself for Orientation. Feel free to call our office or email us if you have any questions.
