ORIENTATION Orientation Program is intended to help j i become familiar
v h the campus community and feel at home in your life as a college student. fhrough the Orientation Pi n a m . you are introdu< I to academic life, your lual living unit, and the University community as a whole, including s, regulations, and student services. ILLINI GUIDES Illini Guides are especially selected and trained upperclass students who are representatives of the Orientation Program in each of the housing units. They are chosen on the basis of maturity, academic achievement, standing as upperclassmen, and interest in working with new students. Illini Guides are trained by the staff of the Dean of Students and by student representatives of the five housing groups. T h e y attend two workshops—sprir and fall; study the "Illini Guide Handbook" and other selected materials, and attend group meetings throughout the year. ORIENTATION ACTIVITIES Many of the major orientation activities carried on by the University are held in advance of and during N e w Student Week. Others, carried on after the term has started, include organization of an effective study schedule; conference with faculty advisers, members of the Dean of Men's or Dean of Women's staffs, and possibly with the Counseling Service Staff; mid-semester evaluation of academic progress; and a weekly orientation program on television. The Orientation Television Series provides a standard orientation program for all housing units. Weekly 30-minute segments take up such topics as study skills, use of the Library, student values, organization of the University, and job opportunities. Many housing units will follow the T V presentation with student-faculty discussion sessions.

After him, you may want to seek help from one of the following: the dean of your college, or member of his staff; the professional advisers at the Student Counseling Service; a counselor, resident, or other adviser in your housing group; the student scholarship chairman of your housing group Che may be able to arrange tutoring or other assistance) ; the specialists in the University clinics discussed on Page 22. W h e n your trouble with your studies is general—that is, when you are having difficulties with several or all of your courses—consult the staff of the dean of your college and the Student Counseling Bureau.
