April 20, 2013 — Every year Lassen Community College provides an orientation for Lassen County high school seniors. This year students from throughout the county and Modoc High School attended the orientation.
Lassen College counselor Alison Somerville, an organizer of the event said, “I thought we had a great turn out; a lot of students registered that day.”
Karen Spence, who was helping with the orientation, said all the students had been tested at their respective schools and the orientation was basically to provide an overview of the college and college experience.
All students were also given registration cards and were given priority registration if they were at the orientation.
Somerville said all of the high schools were a great help and actively involved in the orientation.
“They helped organize when we could speak and they organized for the assessment testing, among other things,” she said.
Spence said the students would also be signing up for an ed plan. A counselor meets one-on-one with students to set up their ed plans, which basically helps them know what classes they will need the entire time they are at Lassen College.
During one of the sessions, Tom Rogers, EOPS counselor, advised the students to have a roadmap and firm educational goals.
“There’s no reason for you to not pass classes,” he said and added there are many resources available for students on campus.
Patrick Walton, dean of student services, met with parents while the students received their orientation. Spence said one of the most important parts of the meeting was introducing the parents to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Under this act, when a student turns 18, all rights formerly given to parents transfer to the student.
