New Mount Union Students Benefit from Preview Sessions
August 04, 2009
Mount Union students have been attending Preview sessions during the months of June and July in preparation for their first semester of college. Check out our Preview video on YouTube to learn more about the sessions and how they benefit our new students.
Preview is a two-day summer program designed to orient new students and help them transition from high school to college. It is an opportunity for the faculty, staff and current students to welcome new students and their families into the Mount Union community as well. Five sessions are offered in order to give incoming students and their families the opportunity to choose the most convenient date.
While attending Preview, incoming students take the math and foreign language tests, learn about the general education requirements, and meet with an academic advisor to schedule classes for the fall semester.
Fall Orientation, held the weekend before classes begin, is designed to continue to the transition to college process by providing opportunities to connect with roommates and classmates, learn more about extracurricular activities that enhance the whole college experience, and reconnect with faculty and the academic curriculum through a series of informational and social programs intended to increase a student’s success. First year students also attend their first college class during the weekend’s activities and all new students will participate in Matriculation Convocation, a ceremony that officially opens the new academic year and welcomes the newest class of students.
Fall Orientation starts on move-in day, Friday, August 28. Students will move into their residence halls and reconnect with their Preview groups from over the summer.
