Summer orientation is designed for students to be "Wilson Ready" by the time classes begin in August. You’ll have the chance to meet some of your new classmates and current student leaders, discuss your fall schedule with an adviser, and learn about campus activities and student life. We strongly encourage students and their families to attend one of our orientation days to help with the transition to college life.
