Camp at TAMIU Aug. 12-13

Texas A&M International University's (TAMIU) last  Dusty Orientation Camp is  Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 12-13.  Fall semester classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 28.

 “Dusty Camp,” the University’s freshman orientation program, has seen a boost in reservations, said Jerry Alva, TAMIU director of Student Affairs.

“We offer five Dusty Camps and reservations for them are up about 5% from last year.  We’ve also expanded our orientation offerings for transfer students and our Student-Parent Orientations continue to be very popular. Combined, we expect over 1300 students at our various orientation programs,” Alva explained.

Dusty Camp is conducted over two days and provides students with insight into financial aid, housing, academic expectations, free available student services and TAMIU first year student involvement opportunities.  

Transfer students are also required to attend Dustdevil Transition Orientation, scheduled for Friday, Aug. 16 or Friday, Aug. 23.
