Welcome to College 101: Student Orientation.  Meet Lee Williams as he kicks off the start of Orientation.

Hello and welcome to College 101 Student Orientation here at Texarkana College.

My name is Lee Williams and I am excited to welcome you to this virtual experience. This virtual experience that for the last three semesters we have increased the platform availability for you and now we are offering orientation on demand.

What does on demand mean? It means you can look at this orientation anytime you want. That’s right. It will live on this website for the entire first year while you are at Texarkana College and so we highly encourage you to use this website as a resource for you as you start your journey here at Texarkana College.

I just want to give you a brief overview of what to expect as we go through College 101 Sstudent Orientation here at Texarkana College. Alright, so orientation is definitely scheduled around you, we want you to be successful.

We know we have students who fall into a variety of different demographics and categories. That’s OK. That’s why we’re here. So welcome and congratulations for completing your first step on starting your journey.

I want you to understand that this is your opportunity to shine. You shine by being able to get information you shine by and being able to use this platform as a resource for you. As you start your academic or workforce Journey here at TC.

So here’s how it’s gonna roll. We kind of envisioned the whole entire orientation. All eight modules. That’s right, there’s eight modules we envisioned it to be, probably between 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

And again, you do it at your pace. The only rule is you must be complete with orientation by Friday, August 27th, 2021. Once again, all eight modules must be complete. By Friday, August 27th, 2021, and to be exact, it must be complete by 11:59 PM. Through out this module will be talking about where you can go and get resources.

All you need to do is go to www.texarkanacollege.edu/orientation and that’s how you get back to this platform to get all of these resources and information.

There’s also going to be an assessment that you must complete. An assessment is just an opportunity for us to make sure that you’ve gone through each of the eight modules, and so you’ve got to score 80% on that, and that must be complete by Friday, August 27th, 2021. Friday, August 27th, 2021 11:59 PM.

So again, welcome to College 101 Student Orientation here to officially get things started is our President, Dr. Jason Smith.
