New Student Orientation Volunteers

The New Student Orientation Planning Committee is pleased to announce opportunities for faculty and staff to welcome new students and their guests to campus during June’s Orientation Program.  Last year New Student Orientation was a great success because of the support from the UMW community. Feedback from students and guests stated that guests felt very welcomed by everyone. We could not have done it without you!
We are requesting support from UMW faculty and staff in welcoming our guests as they experience UMW throughout the day. There are multiple areas that people can get involved, including greeting and mingling with students and guests.,br>If you are interested in assisting with Orientation activities please respond via email  to:
Nicole Surething at: nsurethi@umw.edu stating your interest.
You will then be sent a link to “SignUp Genius” by Nicole where you can review and sign up for a specific area and specific dates.
If you have any questions or concerns about signing up, please contact Nicole Surething.
Thank you in advance for supporting New Student Orientation.

Dr. Surething’s presentation, “Perspectives of Psychologists Serving on Threat Assessment Teams,” focused on the expanded consulting role that counseling center directors and counseling psychology faculty face today in light of high profile campus shootings that increased calls for specific services, better communication, and heightened awareness and response on campuses.
