Student Orientations

Central offers several Student Orientations for new students.  See the descriptions below to see which orientations are best for you.

Enrollment Central and New Broncho Orientation

Central's two main orientation programs are Enrollment Central and New Broncho Orientation.

Enrollment Central is the first step you'll take toward graduation at Central.  It's a day-long advisement and enrollment program designed to prepare you to begin your collegiate career. At Enrollment Central you will be able to meet with an academic advisor, take any required course placement testing, get your student ID card, and enroll in your summer and/or fall courses, among many other activities. Your family is welcome to come as well. We have an information session designed just for them.  Enrollment Central sessions for the summer and fall semesters will begin in May 2010. You must sign-up to participate.

Many students will also choose to attend New Broncho Orientation. New Broncho Orientation is the next step in becoming a Broncho. This is where you find out all about Central's resources, how to be the best student and Broncho you can be, and most of all, meet new people. Even if you are coming here with a ton of friends, you definitely want to attend New Broncho Orientation and start your time off right.
