"Before each academic term, we organize orientation programs," according to Rector Çomaklı
Before the start of the new academic term, they organized an orientation program to enlighten the faculty in order to expedite the students' adaptation processes. Rector of Atatürk University, Prof. Dr. Ömer Çomaklı made the following remarks: "When regarded from a broad perspective, orientation training is the healthiest form of orientation process management. Students just beginning their education may find themselves in an unfamiliar environment and undergoing an unfamiliar procedure. This loneliness develops and causes people to withdraw if they are not assisted. They may make a mistake because they fear asking about the issues that concern them. At the beginning of each academic term, we coordinate an orientation program for both our students and academic staff. n this way, our new friends are seamlessly integrated into the system."
Rector Çomaklı noted that communication and sharing of information with students are the foundation of academic success, and he wished that the new term would be beneficial for both academic and administrative personnel as well as students.
