Deptford Twp. – New and returning students will receive a warm welcome as Gloucester County College kicks off the academic year with its All College Day Orientation Tuesday, Sept. 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Providing an amiable introduction, faculty and staff will share need-to-know information in a stress-free environment as students enjoy campus tours, refreshments and recreational activities. Classes start Wednesday, Sept. 4.

GCC President Frederick Keating, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society President Stephen Frey and an interactive student panel will greet newcomers. This orientation describes how to navigate the College campus to access key resources such as the Bookstore, Career and Academic Planning Center and Tutoring Services. Student Life, e-Learning and the GCC-issued email and Portal system will also be discussed. From there, students will head to academic departments where they will meet deans and professors to learn more about their programs of study.

The All College Day Orientation allows students to socialize and acquaint themselves with the campus. Beginning at 12 p.m., they can visit the College Center where a SystemX DJ and caricature artist will entertain and create a relaxing atmosphere. Student Life will provide students with a complimentary lunch at GioFano’s Bistro in the cafeteria. Students can register for classes, pay tuition and obtain their GCC IDs and parking decals at this time.

The event will begin at 10 a.m. in the gymnasium. Students should arrive 15 minutes early. The fun orientation event is sponsored by the department of Student Services to promote the idea that “college is much more than just going to class.”
