What is student life like on a university campus?

First-time Texas A&M International University freshmen can find out by participating in A&M International's free Overnight Freshmen Orientation program Aug. 9 - 10.

The free two-day event will include advisement and registration for Fall semester courses, an opportunity to buy textbooks at the University Bookstore, an informal lunch with faculty and staff, sessions on academic success, career planning, and free University services, plus a chance to explore the A&M International campus and meet fellow freshmen.

The Overnight Orientation will also feature several social activities, including a volleyball tournament, movie night, and pool party.

Entering freshmen can register for the Overnight Orientation by calling the University's Office of Student Development at 326-2280. A $20 fully refundable deposit is required to register. Students should register as soon as possible since space is limited.
