New River CTC announces its schedule for student orientation

Newly admitted students to New River Community and Technical College are required to attend one of the upcoming orientation sessions offered at the five campuses.

“The orientation sessions are extremely important to new students to give them important information about the various services offered by New River to help guide their success,” said Tracy Evans, director of enrollment services. “We invite parents, spouses or significant others of new students to attend also.”

Orientation includes information on student services, academic services, financial aid, security, parking, extracurricular activities, library services and campus tours.

Orientation sessions will be held on the Nicholas County Campus in Summersville on July 31 and Aug. 6; Beckley Campus, Aug. 8 and 12; Greenbrier Valley Campus in Lewisburg, Aug. 1 and 5; Mercer County Campus in Princeton, Aug. 2; and the Advanced Technology Center in Ghent, Aug. 7.

Students and parents/ spouses/significant others should register in advance for the orientation by contacting the campus the student will be attending. Attendees can select one of two sessions offered each day at each location.  The morning session is from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The afternoon session is from 2:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Students will be able to register for classes at the orientation sessions if they have not already done so. Aug. 9 is the last date that fall semester registrations will be accepted. Classes begin Aug. 19.
