NIC new student orientation prepares students for the reality of college

Reality is about to hit and NIC wants new students starting at NIC this fall to be ready when it does. That's why NIC will play host to about 750 new students during “Reality Hits NIC,” this year's version of the annual fall new student orientation held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27. The reality TV-themed event will familiarize new students with college services, processes, student activities and the campus before the first day of fall semester classes Aug. 30. New students will meet in Boswell Hall's Schuler Auditorium at 9 a.m. for a brief welcome from college officials. Then attendees will split into student groups and a separate session for parents, spouses or significant others. The event will also include games and prizes, a Lake Coeur d'Alene cruise, a picnic lunch on the beach and a free t-shirt for new students. The SUB will be open during orientation for students to get what they need before the first day of class, including parking permits, NIC identification cards, catalogs or books. New students planning to attend the new student orientation are encouraged to bring: · appropriate clothing, depending on the day's weather, · $20, license plate number and student ID number to obtain a parking permit, · money to purchase books, · their coupon for a free catalog, and · their class schedule. This year's new student orientation is sponsored by Mountain West Bank. Information: (208) 665-5459 or
