  1. Summer 2019 Orientation Update - Tina Arthur from Orientation Services gave an update on Summer 2019 Orientation. Orientation Services will again conduct overlapping programs for summer 2019 for incoming, domestic first-year students. An overview of academics and schedule building and occurs on Day 1 afternoon with students and advisors. Students and advisors meet again on the morning of day 2 to finish advising and registration in 3 registration time blocks (9:00 am, 10:10 am, 11:20 am). Something new for AAC advised students this year is that they will register in groups rather than individually in advisor’s offices. We will be registering students in the 2nd floor of the Main Library during these times. The Colleges registered in groups last year (in various locations on campus) and will continue that again this summer. 
    • Attached is our F program agenda for anyone who would like a comprehensive overview of the 2-day orientation programs. Full presentation.
