Grambling State University’s Ready for Orientation Advisement and Registration (R.O.A.R.) continues to encourage students to be well adjusted on campus.
R.O.A.R. is for new freshman any transfer students with less than 60 credits.
“The greatest purpose is to give a freshman in transfer students an opportunity to get familiar with the processes and procedures Grambling State University,” Green said “It gives you one-stop-shop units and then you just start classes day. It is a chance to connect with a lot of the University units and then just gives him a more complete experience before they actually start menu advising and registration issues you can just start.”
According to the program’s coordinator Larry Green Jr., it was made to help transfer students and incoming freshmen to receive the opportunity to be more seasoned with the campus.
“It also gives [new students] an opportunity to have everything complete, such as academic advising any financial aid scholarship or anything of that nature that take care of any issues a chance to connect with a lot of the University,” Green said.
The program started nearly 10 years ago and is still continuing to carry out its goal of reaching out to incoming students.
Green intends to make sure that these students are gaining a more complete experience before they actually start rushing into the activities and organizations of Grambling’s campus.
He does his part by announcing any financial aid scholarships that would better help him make it easy for the students to be better equipped.
Green along with the rest of the R.O.A.R. program staff also help to take care of any issues new students may have. This helps them to better connect with campus community at large.
“I just give them a more complete experience before they actually start freshman year,” Green said. “So I just give them a chance if you can help them get familiar with the processes they will not have to worry about advising and registration issues”.
According to Green, freshmen and academic advising staff members are responsible for helping incoming students to make a successful transition from high school.
