The second of four Registration Days is set to take place on Friday, June 2. Incoming freshmen and transfer students will be lining up to learn about what their academic experience will be like at Newman University.
The first Registration Day took place on Friday, April 28, and allowed future Jets to learn more about Newman and what the university is all about. During her welcome speech, President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D. said, "We want you to leave college having wrestled with the questions of what you believe and why, so you can leave with an adult understanding of your faith, whatever it is."
The day will include meeting key staff members, such as Dean of Students Levi Esses, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Kimberly Long, Ph.D., Academic and International Advisor Ami Larrea, and University Chaplain Fr. John Fogliasso among many others.
The students will have a chance to take tours, talk to financial aid advisors, eat in the Mabee Dining Hall, and arrange their semester schedule. More than 60 incoming freshman and transfer students are expected to attend this particular Registration Day.
Associate Director of Admissions Amanda Booth said attending Registration Day is helpful to incoming students.
"It's taking those last steps to become a Jet," said Booth. "Each student will walk away with their fall semester class schedule, their ID and complete other items needed to really make it official to be a Jet. They are officially enrolled Newman students when they walk away from their Registration Day!"
There is still time to register. The admissions office prefers at least 24 hours notice to ensure each student has a pre-set advising appointment with a faculty member in their intended major.
