College students from across the state who plan to transfer to the University of Nebraska at Kearney in the fall will take part in orientation activities during Transfer Day Friday, April 21.
Nearly 100 students have already registered for the half-day program, which affords transfer students who have been accepted for the 2006-2007 school year the opportunity to learn more about their new campus, speak with academic advisers and plan their fall class schedule.
Many of the transfer students are from area community colleges, according to LeeAnn Amm, assistant director of Admissions. Among the campuses represented by transfer students are Mid-Plains Community College, McCook Community College, Central Community College and Southeast Community College.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., students will check in at the Nebraskan Student Union. Displays will provide information about Career Services, Residence Life, the Counseling Center, Student Health and the Center for Academic Success.
Mary Daake, director of academic advising, will address the group as will Dr. Daryl Kelley. Dr. Kelley, a UNK professor of sociology, will present a faculty perspective.
Other activities will include an overview of the UNK student registration system WebEASI, meetings with academic advisers and planning class schedules. Students will also have the opportunity to register for classes.
To conclude the program, campus tours will be offered. The tours will depart from the welcome desk in the Nebraskan Student Union.
