This year’s GE100 Orientation, a course designed to welcome and acclimatize incoming students to the university’s academic and social environment, was held September 5-10. During GE100, students collected the points necessary to receive credit for completing the program by attending workshops, seminars, classical music concerts, movies and department introductions. These offerings help to acquaint new Bilkenters with the campus and its resources, including academic options, library facilities and other features of the university.
On the first day of GE100, booths were set up in front of the Odeon, where members of student clubs and groups were on hand to meet new students and provide information about their organizations. Many students took the opportunity to join groups they found interesting. And on Tuesday, September 10, the student-operated radio station, Radio Bilkent, hosted its annual On Air Party for the incoming class at the grass field on Main Campus.
