New Student Orientation

We are excited that you have chosen to join the Amarillo College community and look forward to supporting you in the pursuit of your goals.

 

AC puts a great many resources at your disposal, one of which is the ideal place to start – New Student Orientation (NSO). We strongly encourage you to attend a session of NSO. It’s a fun and highly informative opportunity to get vital information about classes, tutoring, policies, academic and social opportunities, and abundant supporting resources designed with your personal success in mind.

 

The very best way to begin your journey at AC is to participate in one of three convenient orientations we offer:

 

Badger Bootcamp Badger Beginnings

Badger Beginnings is a day-long summer orientation designed for recent high school graduates. Badger Beginnings includes ice-breakers, campus tour, faculty panel, and special sessions on student success and advising. Participants will receive their first college t-shirt. Lunch is provided, as well as drinks and snacks throughout the day. 


General SessionsGeneral Sessions 

General Sessions are two-hour sessions held prior to the start of each term. General Sessions include important information on key resources and strategies for success, plus a campus tour. While the majority of General Sessions are open to all, some may be tailored to specific student populations, such as disAbility Services.
