NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University recently welcomed hundreds of prospective university students and their parents to the campus for orientation. Summer orientation serves as an opportunity to introduce future students to SFA and their respective colleges and also gives parents insight into their son or daughter's home for the next few years.

During the event, Dr. Janet Tareilo, associate dean of SFA's James I. Perkins College of Education and Office of Student Services and Advising, met with attendees and discussed how to be a successful college student and where to go if help is needed. She also highlighted the registration process and university policies.

"Orientation is our first opportunity to introduce SFA and the Perkins College of Education to future students," Tareilo said. "It is a wonderful time to meet the next generation of Lumberjacks and help prepare them for their college journey by answering questions."

SFA offers several freshman and transfer orientation sessions throughout the summer.
