Cameron University fall semester begins August 19

Classes for the Fall 2019 semester at Cameron University begin on Monday, August 19. Activity on campus has been ramping up in recent weeks, as students have already been checking out the new bookstore, obtaining parking permits, and networking to get the scoop on what they can expect from their professors. Members of CU’s various athletic teams are already prepping for fall competition, while new academic teams such as esports and Speech and Debate are recruiting potential all-stars. The Academic Advising Center is a hub of activity, with staff members assisting those who still trying to refine the ideal class schedule.

Move-in for students who choose to live on campus in either the Shepler Center or McMahon Village takes place on Friday and Saturday, August 16-17. Resident Aggies will have plenty of time to settle into their living quarters before heading to Sunday’s Back to School Block Party on the Ross Hall Lawn, where they can get re-acquainted with campus buddies, meet new friends and enjoy some fun activities.

Once classes start on Monday, students will focus on their academic pursuits and will no doubt start counting down the days until Fall Break.

On Monday and Tuesday, new students will find the answers to their campus questions at Ask An Aggie tents, which are manned by Cameron faculty and staff members, who never know what questions they will be asked. “Where do I get my class syllabus?”, “Where is Howell Hall?”, and “Where’s the best place to eat on campus?” are certain to come up.

As the first week of class progresses, students will balance their class schedule with a variety of Welcome Week activities. Thanks to the Office of Campus Life and the student-led Programming Activities Council, those activities are offered to help ease the stress of hitting the books, getting to 8 a.m. classes on time and finding out how many papers have to be written or how many presentations are required over the course of the semester.

Students in need of advice, feedback, input, study strategies, academic support and more can be confident that assistance is available campus-wide, as the Cameron University faculty and staff are united in the goal of helping every student achieve success both inside and outside of the classroom.

Enrollment is still open for those who wish to start or continue their pursuit of a college degree. For information on attending Cameron University, contact the Cameron University Office of Admissions at 580-581-2289 or go to
