Orienting a New Student to a Distance Program

Tuesday, March 21 | 9:30AM–10:20AM | Meeting Room B, Level 3
Session Type: Professional Development
Distance-learning students start their college experience with one strike against them. Their lack of presence on campus makes it difficult to go through the traditional new student orientation. WPI will present the evolution of student services offered by its Advanced Distance Learning Network, which serves all distance-learning students at its campus.
