Final Thoughts

Lee Williams shares some final thoughts about orientation.

Welcome back. See, I told you you could do it. You’re one step away from completing the orientation assessment and being done with college 101 student orientation here at Texarkana College. I would like to take this time and invite you to a supplemental orientation event we have planned for you. While this supplemental orientation event is not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to consider attending. The event is our first generation college student orientation which is scheduled for Thursday, January 26th, 2023 at 2:00 PM in the Ross Perot leadership classroom. Which is in the academic Commons, better known as a library. And again, you don’t have to be first generation to attend this powerful and informative one hour session.

Next we have free orientation swag. That’s right, free swag for you, which is available in the office of Enrollment Services. Orientation swag can be picked up beginning Monday, January 9th, 2023. The Office of Enrollment Services is in the Nelson Administration building and is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 until 5:00 and Friday from 8:00 until 4.

If you have any questions about any of the information mentioned, please e-mail us at orientation at texarkanacollege.edu. Remember, to receive credit for orientation, you must complete each of the 8 modules and complete the assessment with 80% or higher by Friday, February 3rd, 2023. Make sure you check your TC e-mail prior to the first day of class to get important information from faculty and staff about the first official day of your mission. All resources discussed in each presentation will be located at texarkanacollege.edu/orientation.
Some of the resources that we have available include a campus map, sample schedule, technology information, the commit to complete certificate, and other critical information that will help you on this journey.

Listen, I’m so excited that you have completed the first step on your collegiate journey. I would not be truthful if I told you the mission would be easy. The mission is going to be hard. It’s going to involve hard work. The mission will have tiers, obstacles, roadblocks, and all of the things that come with being alive in the 21st century, the exciting part is that we’re here to help you with the journey, be willing to ask for help.

And so again, congratulations for completing College 101 student orientation, and I can’t wait to meet you on campus.
