Stockfarm August 25, 2017– Dominica State College (DSC) Orientation week 2017 is carded for Monday August 28, 2017, to Friday, September 2, 2017, at its lower campus in Stockfarm.

Orientation is a week-long series of programs to welcome new students and ease their transition from secondary school into the Dominica State College. It includes opportunities to meet key administrators, faculty, and staff members as well as to attend workshops, presentations, and sporting and social activities that will help the new students acclimate to life at DSC. During this time, students will learn about the college policies, programs and resources, and register for classes.

This year the Orientation will take an entirely new format where students are expected to attend a number of workshops and presentations from 8.30am to 4.00pm daily for the entire week. According to Dr. Schuyler Esprit, Registrar and Dean of Academic Affairs at the Dominica State College “It is mandatory that all new students attend all the sessions during Orientation week”.

The formal opening ceremony will take place on Monday, August 28, 2017, from 8.30am at the DSC auditorium. The highlights of the ceremony will include a feature address by Honourable Peter St. Jean, Minister for Education, an address to the students, Dr. Schuyler Esprit, the welcome address by Dr. Ian Lambert, and a student testimonial by a former student.

Every year during Orientation week, DSC sets aside a special day for parents to interact with the management and staff of the college and to orient the parents about its policies and programs. After consultation with the parents last year, DSC has decided that for this year, there will be two parent information sessions. The first parent information session will take place on

    I hope that DSC students can be taught to proof read better than the writer of this press release.
