CAC schedules 11 fall Orientation to College sessions

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - In preparation for the 2013 fall semester that begins after 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16, Central Arizona College students now may register online, over the phone, or in person for one of 11 three-hour orientations available at six locations across Pinal County.

The orientations will begin July 25 and run through Aug. 16, with sessions scheduled in the morning and evening, depending upon location.

CAC's Orientation to College (OTC) provides new and returning students and their families the opportunity to connect with other students, faculty and staff. Each orientation includes topics ranging from how to get connected with student activities to locating academic resources.

"Orientation to College assists students in making a smooth transition into college," Jenni Gonzales, CAC's interim dean of student affairs, explains. "Many students go through their entire CAC experience unaware of the various resources that are offered at CAC. Orientation provides new, as well as returning students, with a head start by shedding some light on those resources, as well as providing valuable connections to CAC faculty, staff and other students. "

One lucky student who attends orientation will win a $200 CAC scholarship. For more information or to register for Orientation to College, please visit or contact a CAC academic advisor ( / 520-494-5524). The following is the schedule for Orientation to College:
