Big Sandy Community & Technical College held Student Orientation on all campuses to welcome students and help them with their transition to college.

“We wanted to have an event to welcome our new students and give them helpful information and also to answer any questions they may have to make their transition into college a little easier.”
said Tina Terry, Coordinator of Student Activities and Recruitment.

During New Student Orientation, students received helpful information about Scholarships, Financial Aid, Disability services, as well as a session held for parents to answer any questions they may have.

“I am majoring in Criminal Justice at BSCTC because I want to help people but before I go to the Army I want to get an early start on college. The orientation really helped me open up and answered a lot of my questions.” said Byron Johnson, a Big Sandy freshman from Johnson County.

Staff and Faculty took students on tours of their respective campuses, they were able to get their student IDs, and were able to meet with several community service partners, who also provide assistance.

“I felt overwhelmed before this event” said Emily Daniels, “I am so glad they had this event, it answered all my questions and I enjoyed it.”
