Going One-on-One with New Students Offers Warm Welcome

Globe University-Woodbury welcomed more than 100 new students (listed below) for the summer 2013 quarter by hosting a New Student Orientation last week. This was no ordinary orientation for the new students—the campus decided to restructure the orientation to give the new students more one-on-one attention with each department.

Previously, students would sit in a classroom while the staff and faculty gave them information about the campus. This time, the students had a checklist of departments to visit one-on-one to learn more about what those departments did and answer any questions the new student may have had.

“New Student Orientation is not only crucial for a new student to get everything—from their schedules to financial aid—organized before they start classes, but it also allows them to get to know their instructors and peers in their program,” said Brian Saintey, Globe University-Woodbury director of admissions. “Our overall goal is for our new students to leave orientation feeling comfortable and excited to start classes. This and graduation are two of the most important times I look forward to in our students’ time here at Globe University-Woodbury.”

“We have many reasons to be excited about the summer 2013 quarter,” said Jeff Myhre, Chief Communications Officer of Globe University. “We have lowered tuition for full-time students, reduced book costs, ‘flipped’ classrooms, and we are integrating iPads starting with three campuses, including the Woodbury campus, this summer.  We will continue working to make learning more affordable, more convenient, and more engaging for our students.”
