Free New Student Orientations Continue at LSC-CyFair

Published on: June 30, 2010

Take a tour, learn about campus programs, meet with an advisor, choose a schedule and register for summer and fall classes at Lone Star College-CyFair’s free New Student Orientations.

“During orientation, students will meet student leaders, faculty and staff; learn their way around campus and find out about all the student services and academic programs available at LSC-CyFair,” said Christine Timmerman, Director of Outreach and Retention. “Students will also have a chance to receive academic advising and to register for classes.”

Timmerman said based on feedback from those attending May and June sessions, students feel less confused and more excited about the first day of class. Parents were appreciative and said the orientation was informative and an excellent experience

Early New Student Orientations are set Tuesday and Thursday with morning, afternoon and evening sessions available through Aug. 26. Transfer Student Orientations (for students transferring credits from another college or university) are set July 13 and Aug. 12. Non-traditional Student Orientations are set for July 20 and Aug. 3. Family Orientations (for parents and family members of new students) are set at various times Tuesdays and Thursdays through Aug. 24. Veterans Orientations are set July 15 and Aug. 17.

All sessions are free, but space is limited and students must pre-register online at LoneStar.edu/cyfair-orientation to receive a confirmation with room location and parking information.
