Orientation at The W

Ody OwlOrientation is a program that will assist both Freshman and Transfer students to have a smooth transition as they start their new journey here at The W. Orientation will give students the opportunity to learn more about the University, services offered to students, and academic programs, along with enrolling in classes for the upcoming fall semester. 

 

During Orientation you will get to meet and get to know your upcoming classmates and engage with currently enrolled W students. You will also get the opportunity to connect with members of the University's faculty and staff. 

 

Orientation does not stop at just students. We also have a parent/ family orientation experience that accompanies most of the Student's Orientation sessions. We develop programming for parent and family members that are specific to their needs. 

 

We look forward to seeing you at Orientation! Welcome to The W family!!
