Vaughn College welcomed new students and their families to its orientation sessions on Tuesday, August 15 and Thursday, August 17. More than 260 attended to get acclimated with the campus and be welcomed to the Vaughn College community. Current students led both sessions, accompanied by speaker panels of faculty and staff members that introduced the different departments to prepare students for their first year.

“I’m excited to start the semester. I will be majoring in airport management,” said Zarin Tasnim ’22. “I’m feeling prepared for my classes.” A series of informational skits were acted out by orientation leaders and covered how to navigate common first year problems ranging from contacting parents to respecting classmates. Vaughn prepares incoming students by presenting all resources available before the fall semester, making the transition as easy as possible.

During orientation, students met with academic advisers and faculty, finalized their fall class schedules, toured the campus, and met with fellow classmates and friends. Students also had the opportunity to experience living in the residence hall during this time.
