FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University will hold four orientation sessions this summer for new students who will begin classes at the university in fall 2003. Each new student is required to attend one of the sessions, scheduled for June 19-20, July 10-11, July 24-25, and Aug. 7.
A fifth session will be held on Aug. 8 for transfer students only.
FMU’s orientation is a fun event that gives incoming students the chance to familiarize themselves with the university. At orientation, new FMU students have the opportunity to register for classes, work with an academic adviser, have an FMU ID card made, meet current and incoming students, receive information on a variety of student services, and tour the campus.
Fall classes begin Aug. 20.
