The final New Student Survival Guide episodes are posted, and you can catch up on the previous episodes just in time for the fall semester to begin!
From Shannon Brandt, Assistant Dean of Advising and Student Success
“It is better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.”
At this point most of you have received your class schedule for the fall semester. As you review your class schedule, think about what time you have available for your studies. Finding small blocks of time and using them for studying will catapult you to academic success. Look ahead and prepare!
Academic Orientation is on Friday, August 23. Meeting locations will be shared via your LVC email, posters on campus and through your Peer Mentor. During Academic Orientation you will have the opportunity to ask your academic advisor any questions you have about the semester and your class schedule.
Which day of the week is the favorite at LVC? Watch episode 6 of the LVC Survival Guide. Hint….it isn’t Friday!
We are ready for your arrival! The New Student Orientation site is up and full of information including the Orientation schedule, advice from current students, introductions to student leaders and much more. Take a look….
Visit the newly designed Public Safety pages for easy access to informative reports, safety tips and important resources. Here are a few items to review before you arrive in August:
Parking and vehicle registration policies.
Students and parents can sign up for emergency notification text/email via the e2Campus system.
The emergency plan for detailed information on what to do in emergent situations.
RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) training is being offered this fall and training dates are listed.
Make sure to add Public Safety’s 24-hour phone number, 717-867-6111 to your cell phone contact list. Public Safety is always available to assist you with your needs and we look forward to meeting you in August.
Who doesn’t love free stuff? You’ll be able to get lots of free stuff as a new LVC student – but there’s one requirement. Watch the latest LVC Survival Guide episode to find out what it is!
There is still time to register for one of our Family Summer Socials. Meet new and “old” members of the LVC family in a location close to you. Socials are also the perfect opportunity to meet your roommate! We hope to see you for food, fun and friendship.
