Advising & Registration Days
Manchester’s newest students – the first 88 of them and their parents
(and a few grandparents, little sisters, girlfriends and boyfriends) –
began their college careers June 6.
At Advising and Registration Day, the first-year students met
one-on-one with faculty, settled financial details, smiled for their ID
photos and registered for classes.
The rest of their classmates will fill three more Advising &
Registration Days throughout June, as Manchester College builds its

is on pace to make its 2007 goal, and to enroll its largest first-year
class in more than 15 years.
Advising & Registration Day is a full schedule, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Students and their parents learn about the importance and support the
College places on academic success and what to expect living on the
Manchester College campus. They’ll also talk with financial aid experts,
meet with faculty advisors and hear faculty presentations about their
majors. At the end of the day, students register for classes.
They will move into their residence halls Aug. 26 for three days of
new-student orientation to further prepare them for a successful and
fulfilling time at Manchester College.
The 119th year of the liberal arts college in North Manchester,
Ind., begins Aug. 29.
Other Advising & Registration Days, all with the same schedule,
are: Tuesday, June 12; Tuesday, June 19 and Wednesday, June 27. For more
