The Aggie Welcome and Orientation Office facilitated Spring Orientation where we had 46 domestic students attend and 38 international students attend for a total of 84 students. We had a total of 31 walk-ins, all of which were international students who were advised and registered for classes. Our office extended the orientation invitation for this program to all the online participants, in addition to all of our DACC students transferring to NMSU main campus to help with the transition in a face-to-face setting.
This past semester, Aggies Activities Council (AAC) was established and has overcome a great feat in chartering, establishing an Executive Board, and gaining a following. The main avenue in which AAC maintains communication with the NMSU student body is through their Instagram account. During the fall semester, AAC set a goal to attain 500 followers before January. This week they have surpassed even the highest expectations and reached 2,000 followers!
