The first Monday of the semester, Registration Day, is a day where students can take care of administrative tasks such as going to the Financial Aid Office or the Business Offices. Students had the opportunity to speak with faculty advisors, academic administrators, current students and other new students. Students could also obtain housing information, buy their books and pick up their I.D. cards. However, on Sat, Oct. 22 the Office of the Registrar sent out an all-campus email describing changes to the academic calendar for 2011-17. The most immediate change is that classes will begin at 8:00am on Mon, Jan. 23, 2012 instead of at 6:00pm.
