Orientation 2007 scheduled
Orientation for new incoming students at Penn State Wilkes-Barre has been planned for Thursday, August 23, 2007 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. New students can expect to receive orientation information and a pre-registration card in the mail in early August. This mandatory program is free of charge and provides new students the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and fellow students and attend workshops to assist them in their first year at the campus in Lehman. Students will confirm their pre-registration in the Athletics & Recreation Building at 8:30 a.m.
This year's orientation is packed with informative, entertaining, and fun activities. Sessions feature a general information get-together and campus tour, ice-breaking activities with Jack Chambers, and a coffee house chat with the 2007 student orientation leaders. Faculty members will facilitate a student centered discussion on the book, A Man Without a Country, by Kurt Vonnegut (Random House Trade Paperback, ISBN# 978-0-8129-7736-3). This book is available at a discount at the Penn State bookstore and students are asked to read the book prior to orientation.
Students with questions or concerns about orientation may contact Jackie Warnick-Piatt, Student Activities Coordinator, at 570-675-9284 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
