Orientation Day Pictures from TWU

Hey, we had a great day on Saturday, meeting and greeting all the new TWU students and their parents.  Here are some pictures.

O-Day Packets

These packets contained a map, a few critical pieces of information, their parking pass (if they had a car), an invite from their Academic Adviser, and their schedule of classes and a few other things.

What can I say – the lights were bright and I was looking for shade.

After you walk into our office (under the shade palm), you are greeted by some self-serve stations. There are 4 more to your right, as well.

The self-serve stations prove to be very popular and was well-used on Orientation Day.

These are some of our staff who serve students with registration, payment and other related tasks, such as buying a parking pass or getting a letter confirming they are students.

Taken from behind the Service Stations and looking back at the entrance. You can see the crowds just beginning to form, although it never really did get too crowded, thankfully!

These are some of the weloming faces students and parents meet in the tent. They are truly wonderful people, made up of full-time office staff, student workers and volunteers for the day.

In the tent, students could pick up their packets and get information. We also had runners who would help with taking the new students and their parents anyplace on campus.

This young lady deserves the Moses award for being able to run around all day with her arms over her head! She would stop people and beg them to ask her any question they wanted. She was great.

This is a picture of the parents tent, where they had information and free coffee for all the parents of new students. It was a great hang-out place for people to meet their future in-laws! Hey, we all know university is a great place to meet your future spouse!

And, once everyone had gone, we cleaned up everything and moved inside for Monday and the rest of Orientation Week.

Hands-down, everyone says this was the smoothest Orientation Day we’ve ever experienced. We were able to have fun with students and their parents and not a single upset person did we meet! Well done, everyone!
