Approximately 400 Northern Oklahoma College freshmen will meet on the Enid campus for an all-day session Friday, according to Steve Glazier, director of counseling services. Ed Vineyard, NOC vice president for the Enid campus, will welcome the new students at a general assembly beginning at 9 a.m. in Briggs Auditorium. Student Senate President Jenni Williamson and Student Body President Whitney James will give overviews of life at NOC, including tips for success.

Starting at 9:30, students can participate in Ultimate Road Trip: Campus2Career. This presentation will be delivered on campuses across the nation this fall to more than 350,000 students.

The program emphasizes importance of academics, time management, setting goals and maximizing opportunities both in college and in future careers.

While incoming freshmen are participating in Ultimate Road Trip, parents are invited to attend a presentation geared toward their concerns in Montgomery Hall of the Gantz Student Center. Parents will receive information about financial aid, learning disabilities, residence halls and the FACTS budget plan.

The afternoon will be devoted to breakaway workshops exploring such topics as developing appropriate study skills, NOC-Northwestern Oklahoma State University 2+2 plan, library and Internet information and college involvement. Orientation Ambassadors, selected by Northern Oklahoma College faculty and staff on the basis of demonstrated leadership skills, will help guide students throughout the day.

Orientation Ambassadors also will assist the instructors with the individual workshops.
