Lane College Concludes Fall Assembly

On Friday afternoon, August 15, 2014, Lane College faculty and staff members completed their two-day annual Fall College Assembly, and prepared to welcome students to campus beginning today.

During the assembly, matters of critical importance involving academics, branding, student affairs, federal regulations, and other vital issues were discussed in interactive sessions on both days. College Vice Presidents and Departmental Directors made presentations and led audience members in collective and collaborative discussions. During the Thursday morning session, Lane College President Logan Hampton presented his State of the College address. The theme of the Fall Assembly was Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.

Beginning on today, Saturday, August 16, the college has begun welcoming freshmen to campus and presenting them with an array of activities, seminars, and informational sessions that have been specially designed and tailored to their needs and interests. These activities will continue through Wednesday, August 20. On Thursday, August 21, freshmen will begin the registration process. Upper classmen will arrive on campus on Friday, August 22, and will continue their registration through Saturday, August 23. Registration will be held in the J. F. Lane Health and Physical Education Building from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on each day, and college offices will extend their hours until 8:00 p.m., including Saturdays, during freshmen week and registration. Classes will begin on Monday, August 25.
