With the 2008-2009 academic year only six weeks away, Belhaven College is busy making preparations for returning students and those entering campus for the first time. Central to the first week, are two programs developed specifically for freshmen and transfers.

BLAZE ’08, Belhaven’s on-campus orientation for ALL incoming freshmen, will be one of the most exciting and fast-paced experiences of your college life. Not only will you meet many of the students, faculty and staff who make up the Belhaven family, but you will also learn your way around campus and begin to make Belhaven College your home.

CONNECT ’08, Belhaven College’s Transfer Student Orientation Experience, is designed to assist you as you join the Belhaven College family. Like every family, we have traditions, meaningful names, and interesting people to discover – all of which you’ll be introduced to before the year kicks off!

BLAZE and CONNECT begin Saturday, August 16, at 9:00 a.m., with activities through Thursday, August 21.

* BLAZE ’08 and CONNECT ’08 are different programs than summer pre-registration and participation is required of all freshmen and transfers. With the exception of advising and registration time, events on Sunday through Wednesday are subject to change. Watch your mailbox later this summer for the BLAZE and CONNECT brochures and final details.
