Black Hills State hosts pre-registration for incoming students - top

Jennifer Butler (center), program assistant for residence life at BHSU, asks questions during the “Who Wants to be a Yellow Jacket” game during a recent Pre-Register Early Program (PREP) session. Incoming freshmen Brad Lemmel, Faith, and Sarah Burtt, Nisland, volunteered to take part in the informational and entertaining presentation based on the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” television game show. These two students were among 75 who attended the Top Jacket PREP session which was offered to students who graduate in the top one third of their high school classes or have high ACT scores.

Incoming freshmen play "Who Wants to be a Yellow Jacket"

New students at Black Hills State University are participating in a Pre-Register Early Program (PREP) to register for classes, make final arrangements for housing and dining services, and meet with faculty advisors.

BHSU has hosted five PREP sessions this summer and has plans for five more sessions. Nearly 500 students have participated in the program this summer. According to Shawnda Carmichael, coordinator of PREP, the half-day program is designed to ensure a smooth transition to BHSU for incoming freshmen as well as transfer students.

“Black Hills State University is committed to providing a quality orientation for our new students,” Carmichael says. “There are many reasons for students to attend PREP. They have the opportunity to meet with academic advisors and set up their fall schedules. PREP helps students prepare for their first semester at BHSU. Students learn about university policies, student services, the advising and registration process, and campus life. They also have a chance to ask questions and get answers.”

PREP also provides the opportunity to meet future classmates, get room assignments and receive a student identification card. For more information contact Carmichael at 642-6278.

Plans are currently underway for the next phase of orientation, New Student Days, which is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 28 and Monday, Aug. 29.
