Thousands of incoming freshmen and transfer students will be getting their first taste of college life at West Virginia University during the next three weeks. WVUs New Student Orientation begins today (July 10) with sessions running through Friday, July 28.
New students and their parents or guests will not only tour campus and get their picture ID cards, but they will also experience dorm life during their stay at the Evansdale Residential Complex.
Other planned activities include placement exams, meetings with academic advisors and a sample of the popular WVUp All Night program.
Participants will be introduced to the Career Services Center and Career Success Academy, learn about WVUs more than 250 clubs and organizations, computer labs and facilities and generally get more familiar with the University and what it has to offer.
They will also meet Resident Faculty Leaders, and hear about the Mountaineer Parents Club from First Lady Susan Hardesty.
WVU President David C. Hardesty will also welcome new students and families to campus at as many sessions as possible.
