Hello all fire study students, and welcome back to campus. I send this email to remind you that the fire program’s fall orientation meeting will be held on Thursday, August 31 at 5 PM, in Stipes Hall room 501.
The intention of the meeting is to introduce the program to our new students, review changes in the major and its curriculum and introduce our newest faculty member, Dr. Ronald Morgan. Additionally, presentations will be made by our school director, internship coordinator, the fire studies fraternity Omega Gamma Phi and Western EMS.
All fire studies students are welcome to attend, although it is particularly important that new students including freshmen and first semester’s transfers attend this meeting.
Refreshments will be served.
