Welcome, New CC Students!
Below is a schedule outlining New Student Orientation (NSO). You will also need to complete the required forms on this “CC Bound” website; those forms will be available starting June 1, 2015. Here’s other important information for you to keep in mind:
- In order to access some of the forms on this “CC Bound” website, you will need certain passwords. On June 1, we will send a letter to you via snail mail which contains your necessary passwords.
- This letter will be enclosed in a copy of the NSO common reading, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. Look for yours in the mail early to mid-June. All incoming students are expected to read the book; as you see from the schedule, you will then be discussing the reading with your classmates and faculty. You are also recommended to review the questions in the online reading guide.
- Remember to contact Campus Activities or 719-389-6800 for all of your NSO questions.
