Tuesday September 4 is the first day of classes of our new academic year. Today all new students are moving in and getting settled, and they’ll have two days of orientation and fun events before returning students join us on Monday. It’s going to be a busy weekend on campus, and we’re exciting to have our new Gulls here!
At Summer Orientation this past weekend, our Student Affairs folks and the New Student Mentors used a fun new tool to interact with attending students. The website PollEverywhere.com allowed presenters at orientation to collect instant feedback via text on a variety of subjects from ‘what will you miss the most when you leave home?’ to ‘how often are you on Facebook?’ Interspersed with conversations about make good decisions, setting expectations, learning new things, and settling in amidst a new environment and a new community, these polls tell us a bit about what issues are important to incoming college students. Read on for some examples, and thanks again to all for a spectacularly successful orientation!
