"Orientation is a very important step in the transition to your new school and new lifestyle,” said Hannah Lemay, senior agricultural education major from Tuscola, Illinois, and student orientation leader. “The people you meet and the resources that are provided are vital to setting the foundation for a successful college experience. As a transfer student, orientation helped me to get to know my new home a little better and get to know the people that are going to be supporting me in my educational journey. I truly believe that RNO set the foundation for my love for Murray State University to continue to grow."
