Orientation - Fall 2015
Orientation

 

As a new student, your first priority will be to get comfortable at Coker College. It is our job to provide you with everything you need to make a smooth and easy transition. We do this by organizing a first-class orientation program that you’ll find fun as well as informative. All students who are new to Coker College must attend an Orientation program. To help meet the unique needs of new first-year and transfer students, we have designed two distinct programs that will assist you in your transition to campus.

First-Time Freshmen

For first-time freshmen, you will begin orientation on Saturday, August 15, 2015.
