Orientation Scheduled for New Spring Semester Students

Released: 11/05/2008

Four orientation sessions have been scheduled for first-time freshmen and transfer students who will enroll at LSU at Alexandria in the spring semester, announced Bob Tillie, interim director of the Advising Center. Entering students are required to attend one of the orientation sessions on Nov. 20, Dec. 4 and 11, and Jan. 5.

Students should call the Advising Center at 767-2604 to schedule an orientation session. Transfer students with more than 12 hours of college credit are not required to attend orientation, but they are welcome to do so.

“Orientation is very important to make students comfortable and aware of the services and functions of various offices on campus,” said Tillie. “It makes the entire process of getting acquainted with LSUA much easier.”

Orientation includes sessions on course registration, information and educational technology, financial aid, student services, university police, auxiliary services, and advising.

Registration for the spring semester is Jan. 7-8, and classes begin Jan. 12.
