College Kicks Off 2016-2017 School Year

Dominican College administrators, faculty, and staff have welcomed students for the 2016-2017 school year.   Christine Dilts, Assistant Dean of Students, said that freshmen were busy with activities during a three-day Orientation from Thursday, August 25  through Saturday, August 28. 

“Our objectives for Orientation are that the students coming in feel welcome and they feel like they belong, which means that they are going to make friends and become a part of the Dominican family.  We also want them to be familiar with their surroundings so that they know where to go for class on Monday morning.  And we want them to have a sense of the resources that are available to them,” said Dilts. 

Student leaders have been trained as Orientation Leaders and have been helping freshmen with the transition to college. During Orientation, freshmen attend a number of activities and informational sessions to help them make friends and become comfortable at Dominican College.
