Spring 2022 Orientation for New-Incoming Students and Families

We are preparing and getting excited for Spring 2022 orientation! New Mountaineer students and families will be joining us for Orientation in-person on January 6th and 7th. Students and parents will attend some information sessions together and others will be separate.

Please visit the Spring Orientation Schedule of Events for more information regarding the one day in-person model. New students living on-campus will be able to move into their residence hall the day prior to their Orientation session. Please make sure to review the Winter Break Closure and Spring 2022 Opening information on the University Housing website. In the event that we need to shift to an online format, students and families will be notified via their AppState email.

What’s a little different this spring?

  • We are allowing advisors to advise their new students prior to Orientation via Zoom. Students must still attend Orientation in January. If they fail to attend, their class schedule will be dropped before the first day of classes.
  • Any students that are not seen for early advising will be seen for individual advising on their Orientation day.

Veterans Week 2021

Running from Monday, November 8 through Saturday, November 13, Veterans Week 2021 was packed with events and activities. Wellness and Prevention Services provided massage chairs to the SVRC for the week and the Marine Corps Officer Program visited campus with Flight Simulators from Tuesday to Friday. The Flight Simulators were a big hit, too - even Coach Clark took a turn flying! The Career Development Center also assisted with Veterans Week Programming by offering a series of workshops designed for student veterans.

On Tuesday, November 9, we partnered with Rivers Street Ale House to host a pancake breakfast for our student veterans. Over 30 folks came out to enjoy pancakes, sausage patties, orange juice, and coffee. Student Affairs staff from the Office of the Dean of Students and from the Central Office helped with the event. Guest chefs, Vice-Chancellor JJ Brown and Josh Cutchens from Student Conduct, made all of the pancakes.

Another highlight of Veterans Week was our annual Veterans Day Ceremony. This year’s keynote speaker was Mrs. Barbara Ashley, a 35 year active duty spouse. Mrs. Ashley shared touching remarks about her experiences as a military spouse with the more than 100 members of the Appalachian Community who were in attendance. Her unique perspective provided insight into the lives of military families across the nation.

We closed out the week strong with two amazing events: the FIRST EVER Military Mountaineer Homecoming and our annual Heroes Day Tailgate. On Friday night, we welcomed current and former student veterans to campus for an evening of fun and fellowship as we celebrated the 5 year anniversary of the opening of the SVRC. Finally, we hosted nearly 80 people at the McKinney Alumni Center for the Heroes Day Tailgate on Saturday morning.

Introducing Engage’s Newest Feature: The Involvement Record!

The Involvement Record is a compilation of student’s involvements and experiences in Engage. Students have the ability to customize their record and use it as a tool to tell their involvement story!

One of the many benefits of our Engage platform is the ability to provide our students with a document detailing their co-curricular involvement, from their organizations and positions to event attendance and beyond. — The Involvement Record is a great tool for individual students to track their campus engagement experience.

The Involvement Record has several components:

  • Involvement History
  • Event Attendance History
  • Self Reflections

Learn more about the Involvement Record on the Engage Support Website.
