The Westminster community personally welcomes you at new student orientation and helps you complete last on-site requirements before you matriculate. The morning program, ending with lunch, is filled with welcome, student testimonial, a bit of mandated state training, general encouragement, making new friends, and food. 

Other new student orientation activities include a fall picnic and a camping trip. Along with the new student orientation program, these activities provide unique and valuable time to meet and get to know others before the term, with its weighty and socially-limiting requirements, begins. Each has provided opportunity to form friendships that can last throughout a program and beyond.

Please know that the new student orientation program is mandatory. Missing it requires reading the materials covered in the mandated state training and submitting a response paper regarding the information to Student Development before registration for future terms may commence.

Instead, come to new student orientation activities and enjoy time together for as long as you can! See you there!
