Registration Underway for
Final Dusty Camp

Procrastinators take heed. Registration is underway for the final Texas A&M International University New Student Orientation, Dusty Camp, scheduled for Aug. 5 – 6. Dusty Camp is mandatory for new students and first-time freshmen.
The first day of classes for the Fall semester is Monday, Aug. 23.

The Dusty Camp experience focuses on giving students information that sets the stage for a timely and purposeful transition to University life, said Miguel Treviño, associate director of Student Affairs.

“This is a required program for all first-time entering TAMIU freshmen and is designed to give them the necessary tools to be successful as they begin their studies here,” he explained.

“Students have the opportunity to meet their fellow classmates, learn about expectations, and spend the night at the Residential Learning Community to absorb University life to its fullest. The experience also enables them to interact with professors and students in a collaborative setting that provides valuable insight on success inside and outside the classroom,” Treviño noted.

Among activities scheduled are private concert performances by TAMIU president Dr. Ray Keck and a special TAMIU-style barbecue. Dusty Camp is free to student participants and includes overnight accommodations and meals.

The site also includes a gallery of 2009 Orientation photos and access to important student success resources.
