Incoming first year students MAP out next four years
Making a Petrel (MAP) Day brought incoming students to campus for the first time this summer. The event allows new Petrels to discuss class schedules with a Compass Advisor, see on-campus residence halls and get connected with current students and faculty. Parents are also in attendance to learn the ins-and-outs of Oglethorpe so they know what to expect for their new enrollees.
After receiving newly minted Petrel Passes during the morning breakfast and welcome, students separated into small groups for team building and more focused orientation sessions. All 120 students and parents were joined by the student orientation leaders for lunch in the Petrel’s Nest before an afternoon resource fair on the TLCC Patio to explore campus clubs, departments and Greek organizations, as well as popsicles from King of Pops.
Campus Life hosts and organizes MAP Days.
