Welcome to Southwestern Community College’s New Student Online Orientation. We hope you find this presentation to be both informative and encouraging.
Throughout the following pages, you will be introduced to Southwestern faculty and staff who are skilled with the ability to help you succeed. You will also be introduced to a number of departments that are as committed to your success as you are. At any time during this presentation, please feel free to pick up the phone and connect with the department or person speaking to you.
As an overview of what you will see in the coming pages, the navigation links for the next and previous pages will appear at the bottom of each page area. There will be text on some pages that are hyperlinks to other web pages at SCC. These pages will open in a new browser tab or window, so you may need to disable pop-up blockers. It may take a few minutes for each video to start playing once you click the play button (sideways triangle), depending on your Internet connection speed. There are transcripts of each video available as a link adjacent to each video. The transcripts are in PDF format and should open in a new browser tab/window. Lastly, when you fill out the brief form at the end (which is required), you will be e-mailed a confirmation verifying you completed the New Student Orientation online. This e-mail will contain the contact information for each of people/areas in the videos you have seen.
