Feather River College holds outdoor student orientation

By Angelina Wilson

Every Student was tested for COVID-19 between 8 and 10 a.m. and was given a yellow wristband to show they’d been tested before proceeding to the resource fair and welcome that was hosted behind the football field at FRC.

Students showed up to learn about new regulations in place due to COVID-19. Everyone wore masks, and each station provided sanitizer and practiced social distancing.  At the end of each day, test results came in from the Plumas County Health Agency and each student who tested negative was given a green wristband.

Activities

The school provided New Student Orientation along with healthy campus / housing, athletic and equine orientation. Each of these were designed to prepare students for secure hybrid learning that would keep them and the community safe.

Lunch was provided and faculty as well as student government members and ambassadors worked hard to ensure everyone stayed safe and cool in the heat of the day.

Students took shelter from rain showers in the gym where they received a welcome from faculty before returning outdoors to complete their orientations.
