Orientation and First-Year Programs

Orientation and first-year programs are thoughtfully designed to help you transition to life at Western.

Fall First-Year Orientation

Optional Programs for First-Year Students

Research shows that first-year students are more likely to succeed when they are socially and academically integrated within a campus community. That's why we've designed first-year programs that allow you to dive right into your interests in a supportive community of peers and faculty. 

Transfer and Post-baccalaureate Orientation

Transfer and post-baccalaureate students are strongly encouraged to attend our full-day advising and orientation program designed specifically to meet their needs. Programs are offered for all quarters and address questions and concerns specific to transfer and post-baccalaureate students. Fall orientation sessions are available in July. You can make your orientation reservation beginning in early June.
