Joining President LaForge are Jeanna Wilkes, Delta State Director of Student Life, Ashley Blackburn student orientation director, and Madison Ennis, assistant student director.

This past week marked the beginning of Orientation sessions on campus as the university welcomes new Delta State students to campus. The university offers an extensive orientation program each summer for new students enrolling for the fall semester, and sessions are broken out for incoming freshmen and transfer students. Delta State also has a number of opportunities for parents of first-time students. The two-day programs feature informational sessions on housing, academics, student life and many other topics.

Parents are encouraged to attend the same session as their student, and the sessions include meals, housing for students and entertainment activities to enable new students to meet current Delta State students and spend time with other new students. Upcoming sessions for freshmen are set for June 2nd and 3rd, June 27th and 28th, and July 7th and 8th. There is a transfer student session today, and upcoming sessions set for June 23rd and July 1st. You can sign up on the Orientation web site, and there is a direct link on our home page
