It is undoubtfullly important for a freshman to get accustomed to the new environment as soon as possible ,of course ,the ability of adaptation varies from one person to the other ,with the more tough situation for those who have never left his or her home and lived alone ,but what role should the school play considering how to help the newcomers to adapt themselves to the new surroundings and the new atmosphere?
I think ,the school ,should at first offer the orientation service to the newcomer to aid them in becoming familiar with the kinds of buildings ,such as the lab buildings ,the teaching building ,the dormitory apartment and so on ,which will be at convenience for the newcomers` later study and life .Then ,the school had better develop the relevant service network and hand out the brochure and other materials of the introduction of the school as welll as the service booklets ,in which all the service phone numbers should be included with the purpose of offering the service when and where.Besides ,the school should organize the volunteers to be at hand for the new students to consult and they also can give a brief introduction of the school .
What is more ,the school should develop the atmosphere for the prospective students to feel at home and like to study and live at the school even at the first sight .As we all known ,if impressed by the scenery or some person or some where at the first sight ,we will naturally have a crave to experience the scenery again ,to keep in touch with the person ,or to live there for a long time even if you had at first planned only to stay for a couple of days there,so is the school .If the new students are impressed by the the attractiveness of scenery ,the kindness of the volunteers ,the timely services and all the other things they have experienced at the first day ,it will inevitably attract them to live and study at the school.
Of course ,dozens of services the school can offer besides the above said ,but the aim of the service is the same ,that is ,to help the new students to get used to the new environment more quickly and make them love to study and live at the school and be free of nostalgia for some mummy boys .
