Orientation Day is a Great Way
to Discover All that MHCC Offers
Posted: August 24, 2012
Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) welcomes all new students, friends and family members to New Student Orientation, Thursday, Sept. 20, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the gym.
This annual event is designed to inform, entertain and welcome new students to MHCC before the fall term begins Sept. 24. Students may familiarize themselves with the campus and meet other new and current students, faculty and other college employees.
Following check-in at the gym (check-in begins at 8 a.m.), participants are encouraged to browse the Student Activities Fair, showcasing student clubs and organizations.
Students will then tour the Gresham Campus and take part in a question and answer session. An Academic and Student Services Fair in the main mall during lunch will give students an idea of the range of educational tools MHCC has to offer and where to find them.
Family and friends are also invited to New Student Orientation. This part of the program offers a variety of ways to help family and friends support their students as they attend college. Afterward, participants may choose to tour the campus or visit the Academic and Student Services Fair.
All those in attendance will be treated to a light breakfast and lunch. Students will receive a flash drive, drawstring backpack and chance to win door prizes including a Kindle Fire, an iPod Touch, a TI-84 Plus calculator and free tuition for winter term!
