Students Learn Much at Orientation
Sep 17, 2012
On Thursday, August 30th, the Youngstown Campus offered a new take on student orientation with active participation by 84 prospective students. After an introduction by Campus Director Mike Boyle, the students participated in a “K-W-L” (Know, Want to know, Learn) session where they came up with a list of things they wanted to know about National College. They then watched the orientation DVD about National. Throughout the day, students participated in mini workshops on note-taking, time management, critical thinking, writing, and money management. Lunch was provided during which time the students met with their program directors and chairs. The focus throughout the day was to provide training and understanding of skill sets to help ensure academic success. Students found the orientation helpful. Emil Sopkovich, a new student in the business administration-management program, said, “The faculty and staff covered all the questions we had, let us know what the school offered, and explained job prospects after graduation.”
