Orientations a Must for First-time-in-college Students

Published on: October 17, 2011

Welcome to Lone Star College-CyFairTo 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 starting in November.

All first-time-in-college (FTIC) students are now required to attend a New Student Orientation in order to register for classes, said Christine Timmerman, Director of Outreach and Retention.

“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 Timmerman. “Students will also have a chance to receive academic advising and to register for spring classes.”

New Student Orientations are set for Tuesdays and Thursdays November and December 2011 and Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in January 2012. 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 other program information.

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