(Augusta, GA)- Paine College is proud to welcome the Class of 2015. August 3rd marks the beginning of a new journey for hundreds of Paine College freshmen. From August 3-7, 2011 students from around the country will walk through the "Gateway to the World" as students at Paine.
The New Student Orientation Program is designed to both acquaint students with Paine College and to welcome them to their new community. Students will participate in a wide variety of workshops, activities and will have the opportunity to meet and get to know many of their classmates, faculty, and college administrators.
More specifically, students will have the opportunity to become familiar with the campus, meet with an academic advisor to finalize their schedules and learn about the vibrant academic life at the College. Freshmen will also participate in two time-honored ceremonies. Alumni and friends of Paine College are encouraged to attend the Freshman Parting Ceremony on Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. and the Freshman Induction Ceremony on Sunday, August 7, 2011 at 6:30 p.m.
"These ceremonies are held to observe a person's entry into a new stage of life," said Dr. Tina Marshall-Bradley, Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Classes for the Fall 2011 semester start on August 8, 2011.
