SC9 Workshop Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't attend on my suggested date?

Students can attend any workshop listed above. You are being suggested to attend a specific date based on move-in dates and seating capacity. We ask that you please attend your suggested date, but understand if you have to switch to another one.

I can't attend either workshop during NRW, what do I do?

The information and content that is being delivered is required for every student. Please call New Student Orientation (330-972-2622) if you have any concerns.

What if I'm late & can I leave early?

SC9 Workshops start promptly at the times listed above on each date. If you show up late, you will be asked to attend a workshop on a different date. Please do everything to ensure you will be there on time by utilizing the parking and walking maps, familiarizing yourself with the area, and knowing how long it takes to get there from your location. We've give you every resource available to be on time and expect you to be seated prior to the workshop starting or else you will be asked to attend a session you can make in it's entirety. The workshops will last until the times listed above, and just as the case with arriving late, you will not be permitted to leave early. Please ensure that you have no commitment or have made arrangements to be there until the end time, or select a workshop time and date that will not conflict with any other commitments.

Why do I have to do this?

As a University, there is certain information that is important for us to deliver to students prior to the start of school that was not conveyed during your Advising & Registration program. Information regarding campus safety, student conduct, and Title IX is important for us to get to you before school starts as an educated member of our campus community.
