Why Orientation?

WSU requires undergraduate Orientation for domestic incoming freshmen, transfer students and returning or transferring adult learners. New Shocker Orientation is the last step of your transition into a full-fledged member of Shocker Nation and one that's directly connected to student success.

At Orientation, Transition Mentors will connect you to important people and resources, help answer any questions you may still have about enrollment, introduce you to campus life and help prepare you for your first day of classes. We'll also have lots of fun!
