Weston Exploration Orientation: Fall 2016
Read the 2016 Weston Exploration Welcome Newsletter!
The fall 2016 Weston Exploration Orientation Program will take place from Tuesday, August 16 through Thursday, August 16. Register online (preferably by August 1).
What is it?
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.
What if I also need to attend my academic registration program while WEX orientation is taking place?
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.
Is it mandatory to attend the fall orientation program?
No, not all all. This is a completely voluntary program. However, approximately 85-90% of new students normally participate.
When is it?
This year's program will take place Tuesday 8/16/16 - Thursday 8/18/16. Move-in for students participating in LLC orientation begins at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, August 16 and the orientation program activities begin at 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
How do I register?
Register online for the 2016 Weston Exploration Fall Orientation program. Priority registration ends on Monday, August 1. 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.
Can only freshmen participate in the orientation program?
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.
