On Friday May 4, 2018 USM held their Summer Session Orientation. Together with the USM Student Counselor, Leona Nestor-Hubert, welcomed 10 brand new students to the USM family. Though this number may be small the team was excited about this because it indicated that USM is still growing comparing to last years summer semester. The summer session runs from May 7th 2017 until July 29th, 2018 and usually has the smallest enrollment of new students who are looking forward to get a jump start to their studies before the fall semester.
The orientation began around 10 am and lasted until about 1 pm. The students were given an overview of what is to be expected at USM, everything from registration to class attendance and services available on campus was discussed. Students were also given an opportunity to have a short introductory session with one of the instructors who shared with the students what is to be expected in the course on modern architecture that will be offered this summer.
