Pre-Class Orientation

AUGUST 6, 2019 (TUESDAY) | UB-GYM

 

PROGRAM BACKGROUND:

 

The pre-class orientation program is designed to initiate the integration of newly admitted students and transferees into the academic, cultural, and social climate of the department. The primary purpose of a pre-class orientation program is to help students understand the nature of the department, the educational opportunities available to them, the values and functions of the community, and the central objective of the department as an academic enterprise.  By exposing students to the key services and opportunities available to them, we hope to enable students to make well-informed choices and decisions. In collaboration with different offices, the orientation program aims to provide a structured and holistic introduction to the environment for both families and students. Through programs offered, students will be informed about educational opportunities and responsibilities in and outside of the classroom. It also permits students to participate in academic advising and to learn about matters relating to student registration, campus activities, and other aspects of offered by the university.

At the end of the training-seminar, the students are expected to enhance their awareness and knowledge on the following:
