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.

If you could give any one piece of advice to incoming students, what would it be? 

More than likely you will encounter and face new experiences and challenges. I would advise; whatever values that promote positivity and accomplishment in your life, you keep them as a foundation.
