Highland Community College hosts new student orientation
7/16/2015

Highland Community College's 2015 New Student Orientation has been set for Tuesday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 5. For convenience, New Student Orientation is scheduled for two sessions; however, students only need to attend one session. Orientation begins on the second floor of the Student/Conference Center. Maps are available at www.highland.edu.

Highland Community College encourages all new students to attend orientation. Because HCC is a popular setting for many events, many incoming students may already feel comfortable on campus. However, students who choose not to attend New Student Orientation may be missing a good deal of fundamental information that could have a direct impact on their academic success and satisfaction level as a student. 

Highland recognizes the significant role that parents and family members play in the academic and learning process; therefore, attendance by parents and family members is encouraged.

New Student Orientation is beneficial to both parents and students.

The schedule for New Student Orientation will be as follows:

Tuesday, August 4

  • 4:00 - 4:15 p.m., Welcome
