    Dr. J.P. Anderson, along with other San Jacinto College South faculty members, participated in a recent resource fair during a New Student Orientation.

    New Student Orientation is off
    to an energetic start at all three
    San Jacinto College campuses
    as students learn about student
    support services and tips on
    making the most of their college
    experience.
    Orientation became a
    requirement this year to assist
    students in their adjustment into
    a new college atmosphere – in
    hopes of increased retention.
    Each student receives a student
    success manual, a campus
    tour, attends a resource fair
    with department and office
    representatives and a tutorial

    Kaye Moon Winters, advisor and recruiter for San Jacinto College Central, spoke to a group of incoming students during a recent New Student Orientation.

    about college technology
    resources like Blackboard, e-mail
    and the San Jacinto College
    Online System.
    Parents are also invited to attend
    a non-required session designed
    to provide them with information
    about college policies, the
    Family Educational Rights and
    Privacy Act and what to expect
    when their child enters his or her
    college years.
    Our Student Success Center
    counselors and students are
    working hard throughout the
    entire summer to ensure our
    students are well prepared for
    success this academic year.
    Thank you for all you do here at
    San Jacinto College!

    Each New Student Orientation includes a resource fair, as pictured in this photo of the North campus, where students pick up information on various San Jacinto College programs.
