Into the future

Fall semester at OPSU set to begin

By Scott Puryear

It might seem that it was but yesterday when that timid little five year old went off to kindergarten, and now, grown to a young man or young woman, they are heading off to college . . . and the world.

Time passes so quickly and today’s young people will, sure enough, be tomorrow’s leaders.

Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s mission is to prepare young people for the future, and for many of them, that future begins on August 18th, when fall semester classes start. For many freshmen, the transition is a fun time, and for sure, a great experience. For others, however, it might be just a bit stressful.

In order to make things just a little easier for everyone, the University is offering a pre-enrollment clinic on the Goodwell campus on Thursday, August 12. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m.

At the clinic, students enrolling for the fall will have the opportunity to work with OPSU faculty and staff and have their questions answered concerning things like the enrollment process itself, campus housing, financial aid, and coursework advisement.

Students will have the opportunity to get virtually everything done in a single day – enrollment, ID cards, yearbook photographs, and they can even pick up their text books.

All incoming students are reminded to have their official high school transcripts, (college transcripts if they have attended another school), and ACT and/or SAT scores.

Oklahoma Panhandle State University calls itself the friendliest campus in the Southwest, and all incoming students are invited to campus on the 12th for the clinic (and a buffet lunch will be provided). This fall should be a wonderful experience for everyone, especially the freshman and transfer students. The rest of the students and the faculty are eager to get back into the classroom, the grounds and maintenance group at the school has worked hard to get the facilities ready and it won’t be long before the exciting Aggie football team takes the field for their first game (on August 28th).

Time flies, summer is turning into fall, football is coming, classes are starting within two weeks and . . . the future is nearly here.
