Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The summer orientation program at the University of Northern Iowa grew out of a need for students to be introduced to the campus and campus life as well as to be advised academically about registering for classes. Each summer during the months of June and July, the Office of Admissions, in cooperation with the Academic Advising Office, conducts a series of two-day orientation meetings for entering freshmen. The purpose of these sessions is to familiarize the new students with the campus, campus life, and the registration process as well as to acquaint them with their academic program for the years ahead. During the two-day session, the students are assisted by a Summer Orientation Staff (SOS) of U.N.I. students, faculty advisers, and representatives of the Academic Advising Office.
