Excitement is mounting on the campus of West Liberty University as they are ready to kick off another school year.
On Tuesday they hosted their ninth and final orientation before the fall semester starts.
There had originally only been eight orientations scheduled but due to the overwhelming amount of prospective students interested in participating they had to add an extra session.
Tuesday students and parents had the opportunity to tour the campus, get a first look at their classrooms, dorms and even test out food campus has to offer.
There were also activities geared directly at students and teachers individually.
A student panel was held which opened up the opportunity for students to talk to resident advisors to get a "real feel" of what they can expect their first year at college.
The advisors fielded questions on anything from balancing the students upcoming classes with activities to what to expect from their new professors.
Jim Compston, who is the area coordinator for freshman residential experience, said the main goal of the orientations are to give students a head start before starting school.
For the parents, WLU offered separate sessions to help get them more informed on topics regarding meal plans and financial aid.
WLU begins their fall semester on Aug 27.
