Preview ASU Sessions Set for July 20-21, Aug. 3-4 at University
Three special orientation and registration programs for students enrolling at Angelo State University for the first time this fall are scheduled July 20-21 and Aug. 3-4 at the university.
The sessions are designed to help students along with their parents make the transition to college. Two sessions of Preview ASU, a two-day program, are scheduled July 20-21 and Aug. 3-4. A one-day Preview Express program is set for the afternoon of Aug. 4 for those students unable to attend a two-day session. Students can register for any program by phone at (325) 942-2191 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space in each session is limited and is assigned on a first come-first served basis. Students are encouraged to make reservations as soon as possible so they will have the best chance of being accepted for their preferred session. Almost 600 students participated in the two previous Preview ASU sessions and spaces are filling up in the remaining sessions.
Advance registration is required to attend Preview ASU. The registration fee for Preview ASU is $25 per student and $10 for each parent or guest. The fees include all costs of Preview ASU materials, a dinner and refreshments. Housing accommodations are also available in a University residence hall. Housing costs are $15 per person. Cost of the one-day Preview Express session is $20.
Nolen Mears, associate dean of student life, said the orientation programs acquaint students with all aspects of university life. Additionally, Preview ASU allows incoming students to receive individual academic advising and to register for their fall classes.
In addition to reviewing facilities, courses and student activities, students will be able to tour the campus and meet with representatives of student organizations, academic advisors and the counseling staff.
Fall semester activities will begin Aug. 25-26 with Fish Splash for incoming freshmen. Classes will begin Aug. 27.
