Explore2Enroll continues for new OJC students

To help new students prepare for their first semester of college, Otero Junior College will be hosting Explore2Enroll every Tuesday from June 7 through August 2 in the Macdonald Hall Welcome Center. Each session will begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue until individuals have successfully completed all tasks that have been scheduled for them on that day. The event provides an orientation for new students to Otero Junior College and to the many services available at the college, a campus tour and appointments to complete all their enrollment checklist items. Students can choose which date they would like to attend for their orientation. Students are only required to attend one orientation.

Included in each orientation session will be a welcome from the institution’s president, Mr. Jim Rizzuto,  overview on the college experience that includes dormitory life, the dining hall, coupon booklets, clubs and organizations, programs of study and tips for college and academic success. All students will participate in OJC’s online orientation which consists of a series of information videos, links and quizzes. Optional campus tours will be available immediately following.

According to Debbie Phillips, coordinator of campus and community events, attending an orientation session will give students and their parents a jump start toward their future at OJC.

“Explore2Enroll is designed to give students an opportunity to complete the admissions checklist that is vital to any new student planning to attend in the Fall.” explains Phillips.

All students are asked to register online at; an Explore2Enroll slide will appear on the main page which will then prompt students to the summer orientation registration page.
