CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Sixteen students at the University of Northern Iowa have spent the last two months welcoming entering freshmen, transfer students, and their parents, to UNI's summer orientation.

The students on this year's summer orientation staff were selected based on personality, involvement in campus activities and organizations, academic achievement, knowledge of the university, and sensitivity to the concerns of the new students and their parents.

UNI's Summer Orientation was held in nine sessions during June and July for incoming freshman, and an additional three sessions were held in June for transfer students. About 2,200 freshman students and more than 450 transfer students attended throughout the summer. One last registration session is planned for Aug. 22.

During the orientation sessions, students and parents attended presentations addressing different aspects of college life. Students also met with their academic advisors, registered for fall semester classes and toured the UNI campus. Parents were invited to attend sessions that explained residence hall living, financial aid, academic advising and class scheduling. They also had the opportunity to visit with UNI faculty and tour the campus.
