ARCH

Academic Registration and Creative Horizons

ARCH will be virtual in 2021. All incoming students (new first years and transfers) will participate in two mandatory sessions which take place over two days.

Day One: Course Planning Meeting (plan for about 2 hours)

Your student mentors (we call them ARCHers) and a staff mentor will help you begin to plan your fall semester. Through thoughtful conversations about your interests and educational goals, you'll explore The College of Wooster's areas of study and course offerings, building an inventory of possible courses for your first semester.

Day Two: Course Registration Meeting (plan for about 45 minutes)

Your ARCH Faculty Advisor and ARCHer will help you refine your ideas from the Course Planning Meeting, resulting in your first Wooster schedule!
