New Students Invited to Welcome Day at College of the Canyons

| Community | August 1, 2019

For many college freshman students, the first day of school can be a daunting and nerve-wracking experience. To better assist its incoming class of freshman students, College of the Canyons will host Welcome Day on Friday, August 9.

The one-day event will welcome new students and their families with more than 25 conference workshops — held in English and Spanish — on a variety of topics such as financial aid and how to be a successful student.

“It is our hope that this new event will help better prepare incoming students for the college experience,” said Jasmine Ruys, associate vice president of enrollment services.

Students will also be able to meet fellow students and professors, explore majors, take campus tours and learn about the campus environment and support programs.

Welcome Day is scheduled 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Honor Grove, located at the Valencia campus.


This free event is open to new and prospective students, as well as their families. Parking will be free in all college lots for the duration of the event.
