The university’s final orientation is Monday August 26. Students who haven’t attended earlier sessions this summer are encouraged to stop by and receive handy information on academic programs, registration, financial aid, and campus organizations.
There is also a mini orientation booked for freshmen and transfer students from 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. on July 29 beginning at Nelson Hall. The contact for the event is Brandi Chancellor at 601.925.3839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
