CLARKSDALE – Come along and ride on fantastic voyage to Tigerland and enjoy a first class visit to Coahoma Community College over two, fun-filled days during CCC’s 2015 Orientation,“Passport to Your Future”.

Orientation, designed specifically for the first-time freshman, provides information to ease the transition into college life and introduce the goals, mission, policies, admission requirements, and programs of study available at CCC. Open to both students and their parents, this year’s event will be held Aug. 3-4 on CCC’s main campus.

While not mandatory, Director of Enrollment and Student Services Karen Woods-Done encourages all new Tigers and their parents to attend.

“Orientation at Coahoma is one of the keys to overall student success,” said Done. “Not only does it help with some of those initial feelings of anxiety, but it also provides helpful information on the student experience inside and outside of the classroom.”

This year’s voyager-themed event will kick off at 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, with registration followed by a day of informational sessions, campus tours, team building exercises and other fun activities.

Tuesday the event will wrap up with future Tigers receiving a rundown of the registration process and registering for classes.

Parents will also be given the opportunity to get in on the action with special orientation sessions designed to address issues and concerns they may have, as well as the opportunity to stay overnight to get a feel of CCC’s campus life and where their college student will be living for the next several weeks.

By the end of the event, Done hopes to have shown students and parents why CCC is the right choice.

“Orientation at CCC is the time for our future students to learn our campus better, to meet other incoming students and a great opportunity for us to get to know the students who will help mold and shape CCC for the next two years,” Done said.
