Congratulations! Welcome to Andrew College!
We are looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to work with you on achieving your academic goals. InSpire is the beginning of your Andrew College journey in a successful transition from high school to the College. Andrew College has a unique approach to orientation. New students will participate in a two-part orientation program, including an InSpire and the New Student Orientation (NSO).
InSpire is held in the summer proceeding fall semester. InSpire provides you and your parents with the opportunity to meet the college administration, faculty, and staff and returning Andrew students. You will participate in PRIORITY REGISTRATION for classes and receive your schedule as well as information about how to order your textbooks. All parents are encouraged to attend an InSpire to meet the President of Andrew College and learn about the rich heritage of our institution. Parents will also participate in informative sessions about campus technology, financial aid, residence life, and academics at Andrew. Lunch will be served in Turner Dining Hall for students and parents. After the day is over, parents and student will have an opportunity to meet and ask questions with the Financial Aid Office and Business Office as well as tour one of the four residence halls.
Andrew College New Student Orientation (NSO) is your first opportunity to experience life at Andrew College as a student! NSO will help you to feel at home in Cuthbert, Georgia, become familiar with the academic and co-curricular opportunities, learn about campus traditions, understand how to access campus resources and support services, and meet the Andrew community! NSO takes place during your first weekend on campus. You will participate in events that promote skills needed for college success as well as have fun! The weekend precedes a fantastic Welcome Week program featuring fun nightly activities. New Student Orientation is part of your graduation requirement, and we consider it a great opportunity to start college life!
