New Student Orientation

Welcome to The College of Wooster!

We are excited about the orientation program planned for you! This year's theme is: Master the Elements of Woo. We hope New Student Orientation will stimulate your intellectual curiosity, increase your commitment to civic and global engagement, and support you as you evolve from high school to college students, adolescence to young adulthood, local to global citizens. We encourage you to fully participate in orientation and familiarize yourself with the people, facilities and resources at Wooster. The schedule for orientation is packed with activities; each of which is designed to help you examine Wooster more fully. We encourage you to seek out a new and challenging opportunity every day - opportunities which will stimulate your intellect, enhance your social growth, and expand your view of the Wooster community and the world. Take time to define the community that will be your home for the upcoming years. Discover what it means to you to be a Fighting Scot!

Welcome to Wooster. We hope you have a great year!
