One of the learning outcomes for our newly redesigned New Student Orientation curriculum, as well as one of the goals of the New Student Experience (NSE), is to create opportunities that invite students to connect to Valencia’s faculty, staff and other students early in their college experience.
By giving directions in the parking lot, extending a friendly greeting to student tours as they pass or simply taking time to find the answer to a lost student’s question, you can influence student connection to the College. More importantly, it’s a way of providing a personal experience that will help them find their place here.
If you’d like to know more about all the changes in orientation, including Part 1, the new interactive online component, read the PATHWAYS Update article in The Grove.
