New Student Orientation

Schedule at a Glance

 

The mission of New Student Orientation is to prepare first-year and transfer students for a successful transition to Westminster College. The program works to ensure that new students have an awareness of campus resources relating to academic success, student engagement, and wellness support. Further, we are deliberate in our integration of dialogues around inclusivity, justice, and shared responsibility for upholding an affirming and respectful campus community.
