New Student Huddles to welcome entering Ivy Tech students

Sessions will prepare students for successful first day of class

KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College has scheduled six “New Student Huddles” in early January to welcome students entering the college for the spring 2015 semester.

“Our goal is to make sure our incoming students feel well-prepared for the first day of class,” said Marcia Worland, executive director of Marketing & Communications. “To accomplish this, we’ve planned these 90-minute ‘huddles’ to familiarize students with the campus and its services. And those attending will have chances to collect some great Ivy Tech swag along the way!”

The huddles are aimed at students who completed the college’s online orientation and who plan to attend classes at the Kokomo Campus. Classes start Jan. 12.

The tour will include the bookstore, open computer labs, the Student Life facility, faculty offices, the technology support office, quiet study spaces, the Student Commons, the Student Services offices and more. Representatives will be on hand to talk about copy services, IT helpdesk/support, using financial aid in the bookstore, getting involved in student life, and career services. Participants also will learn how to check campus email, print schedules and schedule advising appointments.

“And for those students registered for online courses, we’ll offer a session to demonstrate online course technology and answer any questions,” Worland added.

Students can choose from this list of dates:

  • Monday, Jan. 5, at 5:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 6, at 9 a.m.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 7, at noon
  • Thursday, Jan. 8, at 5:30 p.m.
  • Friday, Jan. 9, at 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, Jan. 10, at 9 a.m.

Participants must sign up for their selected session by Dec. 31. Reservations can be made by calling 765-459-0561, ext. 252 or 253, or by email at, with name and preferred date.
