Is orientation live ? My son is online and it’s a series of videos that he watched last night. How does he register for classes after this ?
Can a freshman register for a second Orientation? Mine is "attending" hers right now but didn't know about prerequisites for it or signing up for a time slot with an advisor. She is visiting her dad right now which is hours away so I'm not much help and he's at work. She's horribly confused already and she's only 12 minutes into it. I think it would be best to just start over.
There are 7 days until applications close for the Patriot Leader role! If you're passionate about helping students in the mason community transition into college, then this is the perfect position for you! Apply by looking us up on Handshake, or by visiting us at greenpolo.gmu.edu!
Thank you for the fantastic orientation! It was very informative, high energy, and everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. You all did an amazing job and it was appreciated!!! G M U....What? Loved it!!!
