Dear New Student,
Welcome to your first semester at City College's Division of Interdisciplinary Studies! We look forward to having you join our academic community, and we're excited to be able to support you to achieve your goal of earning a bachelor's degree.
I'm writing to remind you to mark your calendar for New Student Orientation, which is scheduled for Wednesday, August 21 at 5 PM. Here are a few highlights of what we have planned for you:
″ Managing your Citymail account
″ Academic Calendar—important dates and deadlines to know
″ Making a program change
″ How to officially withdraw from a class
″ When to expect your transfer credit evaluation and what to do when you receive it
″ Choosing a concentration
″ Getting the most from your advisement relationship
″ Career direction
″ The CWE Library
″ Finding academic support when you need it
″ Life skills and emotional support—counseling services
″ Financial aid—your responsibilities and your rights
Faculty and staff will also be available to talk to about the concentrations (areas of study) in the DIS and the required and suggested courses for each area.
Finally, we are planning a very special ceremony of welcome for you, but I'm not at liberty to share the details…you'll just have to show up!
All humor aside, attending New Student Orientation will give you a solid start to your career as a City College student. It will help you become familiar with the culture of CWE—the academic programs, procedures, and protocols that you will be engaging with.
On behalf of Dean Mercado, and the faculty and staff of the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies, welcome, once again, and we look forward to seeing you on August 21. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Light refreshments will be served.
