Welcome to Orientation! January 19 - 20, 2018.

Founded in 1869 by Reverends Tryon Edwards and James Wightman, local Presbyterian ministers, Wilson College has dedicated itself to enriching students through a well-rounded liberal arts curriculum that is designed to develop the whole person. We hope that during the next four years, you will begin the lifelong process of exploring, dreaming and discovering.

This schedule will guide you through orientation activities during the next week through Monday, January 22—the first day of class. Programs and activities that have been selected for orientation are designed to make you feel at home at Wilson, prepare you for academic challenges and have fun getting to know your new classmates. Sessions at which your attendance is required are noted with a "*" but we hope that you will take advantage of all opportunities to get to know Wilson better.

Check Lenfest Commons and the materials in your orientation packet for information about other events and opportunities that are taking place over the next few weeks.

Below is the current schedule, by day. Locations are still being finalized, so please check back closer to the beginning of orientation for any updates.
