East Central University is now halfway through beginning freshmen group enrollment days. The group enrollment days – dubbed “Tiger Enrollment Days” – give new students a chance to get to know ECU a little bit more before stepping foot on campus in August.
Only three chances remain to take advantage of the group enrollment: Wednesday, July 13; Thursday, July 14; and Thursday, July 28. Individual enrollment appointments are available as well.
“We are excited to offer new students the ability to plan their first semester, learn about student organizations and services, and get their student ID card with just one visit to campus,” said Dr. Haley Matlock, director of ECU’s Academic Success Center.
Students are introduced to the variety of student organizations, Greek Life, life on campus, and opportunities such as Honors, study abroad or study away, choir, band and theatre, athletics and so much more.
“We’ve heard great feedback from students – and parents – who have attended our Tiger Enrollment Day events,” Matlock said. “Students especially appreciate being able to create their first semester schedule and have staff from so many departments available to answer questions. Parents can see that our faculty and staff are committed to helping students reach their goals.”
Important services will be on hand, including health services, counseling, wellness center, accessibility services, tutoring and career services. Incoming freshmen will get a chance to choose classes, obtain their student ID, apply for housing, visit the ECU Bookstore, and finalize any documents.
“We want to make sure every student knows what resources and opportunities we have for them,” Matlock said. “We created Tiger Enrollment Days to help students feel prepared when they arrive on campus for Tiger Prep (orientation) August 12.”
