HCC hosts new student orientation sessions for fall 2011


Halifax Community College (HCC) held new student orientation sessions on Aug. 9 at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in The Centre. The sessions gave students an opportunity to hear from college administration, faculty, staff and returning students, and to explore the campus.


HCC President Dr. Ervin V. Griffin Sr. welcomed students to campus. “I think you’ve made one of the best decisions of your life by choosing to come to Halifax Community College to continue your education,” said Griffin.


He described some challenges that students might face and encouraged them to do their best, “You are the only product that we have once you leave here...Take it seriously, we’ll have some fun, I think you’ll make some lifelong friendships, and the faculty and staff will do all they can to help you be successful, but you’ve got to do your part also.” Griffin emphasized that there are opportunities for all HCC students.


In addition, students heard from Student Services & Enrollment Management, Curriculum Programs, Security, Counseling, Student Support Services, Student Government Association, PRIDE Male Mentoring, and Women of Excellence representatives. A tour concluded the orientation sessions.
