Orientation coordinator Arthur Sutton said that the agenda will include information about the college's student services, Learning Center and Library resources. New students will have the opportunity to have their questions answered in a panel discussion with current students and faculty. Sutton noted that students at previous orientation sessions have commented that they "enjoyed talking to current HACC students," and that "The atmosphere is relaxed and personable," "There is a lot of support and encouragement to succeed," and "There are extensive resources to help you."
The college is still taking registrations for fall classes, which begin August 23. The Gettysburg Campus also offers classes in Hanover, which begin September 7. To RSVP to the orientation session, or for more information about HACC, call 717-337-3855.
