Moraine Park Technical College has set New Student Orientation sessions in July and August for program students who will begin their first classes this fall.


It’s an opportunity for new students to meet each other, connect with Moraine Park staff, get student IDs, purchase books, locate classrooms and visit a “service fair” to learn more campus services such as financial aid, employment, tutoring and more. Short presentations include being smart about what you share on Facebook and MySpace and how employers may react to postings; getting the most out of your academic advising experience; learning more about Student Life and campus involvement; and a student panel discussion with current Moraine Park students. There will also be topics for parents and spouses. 


Participants may choose the date and time (9 a.m.–1 p.m. or 3–7 p.m.) that works best for them: Fond du Lac campus – Tuesday, July 22, or Wednesday, Aug. 13; West Bend campus – Thursday, July 24, or Thursday, Aug. 14; and Beaver Dam campus – Wednesday, July 30, or Tuesday, Aug. 12.
