A pre-orientation program for underrepresented students and their families
This optional pre-orientation program is designed for underrepresented students, including students of color and students who are the first in their families to attend a four-year college. Genesis will help you become familiar with the resources available to help you transition to college.
Scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013, Genesis includes workshops and activities addressing team-building, support networks, academic success, financial wellness and cross-cultural understanding.
Genesis includes a segment for parents and guardians, giving them an opportunity to meet with the academic deans and administrators from various offices on campus.
Genesis is highly recommended, but not mandatory.
In June, reservation forms will be emailed to those enrolled students who have self-identified as members of an underrepresented group. The deadline to sign up is July 1, and since space is limited, reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Participants will be able to move into their rooms on Aug. 21, the day before the program.
