Pratt Community College to host New Student Information Session

Pratt Community College will host a New Student Information Session on Tuesday, Aug. 22 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Dennis Lesh Sports Arena. The New Student Information Session is required for all new degree-seeking PCC students who are enrolled in 12 hours or more for the Fall 2017 semester.

In previous years, orientations for new students were held in Carpenter Auditorium and featured key speakers from a variety of departments who presented in a lecture style presentation. While informational, the previous format did not allow students to actively partake in the discussion and remain engaged throughout the entire lecture.

This year, in an effort to increase student engagement and learning retention, students will be divided into groups to discuss a variety of topics such as financial aid, campus safety, and more.  Trivia and games will be used to teach students important information they need to know while attending PCC.

“The goal of the new format is to provide a fun and entertaining way for students to learn everything they need to know during their time at PCC. We want to get the students excited and prepared for the upcoming school year,” said Jessica Sanko, Coordinator of College Relations & Student Services Assistant. “I believe students will retain the information they learn better in a small group, hands on environment instead of sitting through an hour long lecture.”

Prizes and giveaways will be awarded to students who actively participate. All students who attend will also have their name entered in a drawing for a chance to win a brand new Apple watch.

The New Student Information Session is guaranteed to be fun, informational, and engaging. For more information, please contact Jessica Sanko, Coordinator of College Relations & Student Services Assistant, at 620-450-2192 or jessicas@prattcc.edu.
