Students, meet Southern. Orientation is an introduction to university life. We want you to know your way around, know what resources are available, know where to turn and who to turn to. So you can know success.
While we are here to help new students find their way around college life, we know it can be tough for parents to not know what is going on as well. That is why we offer parent orientation sessions geared to help you learn how to navigate Southern with your student.
The Southern Connections class provides tools for managing the challenges and opportunities on the university journey. You'll gain a better understanding of your peers, professors, university community, and yourself. And you'll learn to be an active, responsible learner.
Each freshman is given a Southern Mentor to help with the transition into university life. Mentors are peer role models who have successfully navigated the transitions freshmen face. They can provide helpful advice and direction.
