Course Description/Purpose: “New Student Orientation” is intended to provide students with information needed to be successful at Lewis-Clark State College.

These interactions will help students get a sense of the campus culture, and more importantly, teach them how to conduct business with the college. Students will learn about the Student Code of Conduct, academic advising rights and responsibilities, and other policies related to their enrollment at LCSC. In addition, they will meet with faculty/advisors within their programs of study and have the option of taking a campus tour.
