Welcome to Wilson College!
Hello and Welcome to Wilson! I’m sure that you are excited about starting
you college career here in a few short months. To prepare for your
arrival, there are several things that we need to do over the next few
months. Shortly, you will be receiving a mailing from our
office asking you to complete several online forms before you come to
campus in August to begin fall semester. In addition, through email,
I’m asking you and your family to select two possible dates for your summer
drive-in orientation as soon as possible. We are limiting each
session to 20 participants, so it is particularly important that you give me
two options to consider.
Summer Orientation is designed for you to complete your academic assessments, meet
with an academic advisor, and select your classes for the fall. All
new students are required to complete academic assessments before being allowed
to register for fall classes. In addition, if you have plans on
taking riding lessons while here, you will need to complete a riding
assessment, and we have times available for that in June and early August.
Remember that orientation is required of all new Traditional
Undergraduate College students at Wilson (commuters, residents, Women with
Children and Internationals). Please refer to the email that you have received from the Orientation Office that contains your Summer Drive-In Form. You may mail it back to me or scan it
and send it back to me – either option is fine. You will receive an email
confirmation of me regarding the date of your drive-in orientation. A packet with specific information about your day will be coming prior to your arrival.
