It’s that time of the quarter, when Globe University welcomes new students during New Student Orientation. The event helps students feel well informed about each department on campus before they begin classes the following week.
Orientation traditionally is made up of a large group of new students who are all given the same presentation. The Globe University-Woodbury campus took a new approach by hosting an orientation that gives each student one-on-one attention with each department at the campus.
“Students are nervous enough before they start classes,” said Brian Saintey, director of admissions at the Globe University-Woodbury campus. “It’s our goal as a campus to ensure every new student that walks through our door is prepared and confident to start classes the following week. That is why we changed our orientation format to give every new student the one-on-one attention they deserve before they even step foot into a classroom.”
As the campus filled with new students, the air filled with excitement. Students were asked what they were most excited about, and many said they were eager to start classes in order to begin their new careers.
“I’m very excited to start classes so I can learn more about the industry and more importantly start my future as a paralegal,” said Brittany Meade, paralegal student at Globe University-Woodbury. “I chose to attend Globe because it’s close to home, my sister loves it here and everyone has been amazingly helpful and invested here.”
During orientation, students were asked to fill out a survey about why they chose to attend the Globe University-Woodbury campus. Below are the top 10 reasons students shared:
