TAMIU Dusty Survivors Camp Helps Students Succeed at University



On Monday, August 23, new Texas A&M International University students will be getting inside information, to be used to succeed during the upcoming academic years.

Students who attend the two-day New Student Orientation, beginning at 1 p.m. on Monday and ending at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 24, will have the opportunity to preview the campus, ask questions and receive information that will make the start of the new school year easier.

Lisa Flores, director of the Office of Student Activities, said the orientation, called "Dusty Camp 2004: Survivors," would offer new students an edge by providing exciting and important information about TAMIU.

"A wealth of information about TAMIU services and programs will be shared with new students. They will be able to interact with faculty, staff and student leaders as they learn about academic programs, student services and student clubs and organizations," said Flores.

She said a Graduate and Transfer Student Orientation is scheduled for Thursday, August 19 from 5 to 8:30 p.m., allowing these students time to have their specific questions answered.

New students who would like to attend any of the Orientations should contact the Office of Student Activities at 326.2280.

University office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
