Preview ASU Sessions Set for July 26-27, Aug. 2-3 on Campus
Three sessions of Preview ASU, the university's new student orientation program, remain for students who will be entering Angelo State University this fall for the first time.
Preview ASU is scheduled July 26-27 and Aug. 2-3. A "Preview Express" program is scheduled for the afternoon of Aug. 3 for transfer students and students who cannot attend a two-day session.
Preview ASU is designed to help students along with their parents make the transition to college. Students can register for any program by phone at 325-942-2191 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Almost 600 students attended one of the two previous Preview ASU sessions in June.
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.
Advance registration is required. The Preview registration fee is $25 per student and $10 for each parent or guest. The fees include costs of Preview ASU materials, a dinner and refreshments. Housing accommodations are also available in a university residence hall during Preview ASU. Housing costs $15 per person. Cost of the one-day Preview Express session is $20.
ASU fall semester activities will begin Aug. 24-25 with Fish Splash for incoming freshmen. ASU classes will begin Aug. 26.
Students participating in Preview will meet with academic advisers to discuss majors and to select courses. Student counselors will be available to assist with class scheduling. By the time new students complete Preview ASU, they will have their fall semester class schedules.
In addition to reviewing facilities, courses and student activities, students will be able to tour the campus and meet with representatives of student organizations and the counseling staff.
