GPS Launches with First Orientation

Ford portrayed a new SFCC student who had many questions about the college’s programs and services, while various administrators, faculty, and staff provided the answers. Approximately 150 new students attended the first GPS orientation in the SFCC University Center Auditorium, then broke up into smaller groups to tour the campus and participate in learning sessions about various aspects of the college. GPS, the college’s new First Year Experience course, is being launched this summer for incoming students to take part in voluntarily.
