Registration Rocks!

Vol State will host Registration Rocks for the third year on Wednesday June 9, 2010 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The event is free for everyone.

“It is the first day registration opens up for new and transfer students. This is the first opportunity they will have to register," said Derek Pennycuff, Webmaster.

“The idea is to get people on campus to learn about anything from the library to the different academic support systems. It's fun and it's the summer. Being a college student isn't just about life in the classroom,” Pennycuff added.

“The first 500 people get Subway. It is a fun day for people to be on campus,” said Heather Harper, Assistant Director of Admissions.

There will be a video game contest with the latest version of “Street Fighter” which is rated T for teens.

“Anybody can join in the video game contest. In the past we have had parents and siblings,” said Pennycuff.

“It’s a wonderful day. It gives students the opportunity to meet each other. There is live music and free food. It’s just a great opportunity for students to relax, enjoy the campus, and meet staff,” said Terry Bubb, Director of the Advising Center.

Bubb points out advisors will be available for students to speak with and register for classes. He said that if there is a long line there are options to do fun things while waiting to speak to someone.

Everyone is encouraged to attend Registration Rocks and enjoy the campus in a non-stressful setting.
