Register for Weston Exploration's Fall 2013 Orientation by completing the online Orientation Registration Form! We look forward to seeing you in August.
Our orientation program is heading into its 15th year! Each year, an energetic and excited group of returning WEX students plan an incredible two-day orientation program for all new WEX residents (both new to the University and returning students who are new to WEX). Weston Exploration residents have the opportunity to move in two days early, settle in, make new friends and participate in fun and engaging activities and events. These events will introduce you to all of the great resources available to you here in Weston and throughout campus! Each year, our students tell us how fun and helpful moving in early and settling in was for them before the campus orientation begins.
This happens quite often, especially for our international students. This is absolutely fine. Your academic registration should always be your priority. Once you have completed the necessary events for your academic registration, please simply re-join the WEX events while in progress.
No, not all all. This is a completely voluntary program. However, approximately 85-90% of new students normally participate.
This year's program will take place Tuesday 8/20/13 - Thursday 8/22/13.
Move-in for LLC orientation participants begins at 9 a.m. on August 20 and the orientation program activities begin at 4 p.m.
Online registration for the 2013 Weston Exploration Orientation is now open; simply complete the Orientation Registration Form to register. The program cost is $30, which covers your meals (starting with dinner on Tuesday), your pre-contract housing, all programs and events, and an orientation T-shirt.
Absolutely not! All new WEX residents are invited to participate and register for orientation. Although some events may be of greater interest to first-year students, all new WEX students are welcome to register and participate. WEX students who are not new students to the University can choose the events and programs that best meet their interests and schedules. Please note that all students are expected and required to adhere to all University policies once they arrive on campus.
