New Student Orientation
Welcome to College Life
It’s happening at Hinds!
New Student Orientation welcomes new students to Hinds Community College. New Students can expect to gain the Hinds Caring Campus approach to student success: work closely with the Hinds Orientation Leaders, meet other incoming students, tour campus, check out our residence halls, and eat in the dining hall. Come see what is happening at Hinds!
Bring the Fun
The Hinds team will mentor new students to the College’s academic and social support services, and student activities. Whether you visit the Eagle Expo (Raymond) or the Bulldog Blueprint (Utica) you will have an opportunity to handle your student business (Financial Aid, Advising and Registration, the Business Office, and additional student support services).
New Students are encouraged to bring up to two parents/ guardians to a day session. Parent sessions will focus on how to support students academically, socially, and emotionally. The Orientation Team has fun activities planned.
