Free New Student and Parent Orientations Set

Published on: June 06, 2011

To start the Lone Star College-CyFair experience off on the right foot, get it all done – take  the tour, receive important academic information, get advised and register - at the free New Student Orientations set June through August.

“During orientation, students will meet student leaders, faculty and staff; get trained on the MyLoneStar system; 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 summer and fall classes.”

LSC-CyFair also offers separate Parent Orientations designed to help parents with new college students adjust to life after high school and learn to support their student.

“At these orientations, parents and family members of new students will meet with college staff, current students and fellow parents,” said Timmerman. “We will introduce you to our wonderful campus through an easy walking tour and a few short presentations on academic life, student services and financial aid.”

New Student Orientations and Parent Orientations are set for Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer. All sessions are free, but space is limited and students and parents must pre-register online at LoneStar.edu/cyfair-orientation to receive a confirmation with room location and other program information.

Orientation sessions will be held at the Barker Cypress campus at 9191 Barker Cypress Road at West Road.
