Welcome Week 2011

Welcome Week 2011

The student development staff at Geneva College has planned an exciting week of meetings and activities that enable new students to connect to their new community, begin work on the Learning and Transition course, and focus on making a successful transition into college life.

First year students will be receiving class credit for many of the Welcome Week activities. Welcome Week is therefore mandatory for all new students.
