It may be summer but staff at local community colleges are hard at work getting students ready for the fall.
Tuesday was orientation day at Meridian Community College. Incoming students from across the region stopped by and spent the day getting acquainted with the campus and getting paperwork and other essentials taken care of.
There are several orientation days scheduled at MCC over the next month or so.
"Today obviously June 12th," says Angela Payne with MCC, "and then we have one on June 26th and July 10th."
