On Thursday, August 30, 123 incoming freshman and transfer music majors attended New Music Student Orientation in the Music Recital Hall, organized by Dr. Lynn Brinckmeyer, School of Music Associate Director. The new music students are given resources and advice on how to be successful. Students were introduced to student organizations, academic advisors, and service fraternities. They also got a few quick tips from Dr. Thomas Clark, School of Music Director, dubbed “Clark’s Rules for Musician Success” as well as health advice, like staying hydrated, sleeping enough and protecting their hearing.
The next orientation will be on Wednesday, October 3.
