In a year unlike any other, Florida Southern's move-in process for new first-year students and transfer students was substantially different from previous academic years. Some things hadn't changed, however, as newly arriving students and their families were greeted by teams of friendly, enthusiastic, and well-organized assistants and staff members.
Face masks and physical distancing guidelines were firmly in place all across campus, to ensure the healthiest possible start for the fall 2020 semester.
More than 70 of FSC's returning upperclassmen served as orientation leaders on Friday, Aug. 28, welcoming the initial group of 300 first-year students at check-in points and directing them to parking areas and campus residences. The same procedures will be in place on Saturday, Aug. 29, as 300-plus additional new students arrive to begin their orientation process. About 100 transfer students begin their check-in and orientation on Sunday, Aug. 30.
Throughout the weekend, virtual events have been planned to provide a valuable orientation experience, including a virtual convocation ceremony, virtual meetings with members of each academic department, and individualized virtual meetings with academic advisors.
