New Student Orientation

Something required of all upcoming students is New Student Orientation! If you’re unsure whether this is you here are some requirements:

1. Recently graduated high school

2. Haven’t received 12 or more credits from a university after you graduated high school.

3. If you have obtained dual credit in high school.

This is a really exciting thing to go to. Not only will you get some necessary things done, you will also get a chance to meet lots of NEW people! You will learn some of the traditions of the school, which includes the fight song! Get to experience the campus and walk around with friends. At first, campus may seem confusing (even though it is small). I visited WT A LOT when I was in high school, but when I actually came here I was really confused. You get the opportunity to stay the night and experience dorm rooms and maybe a roommate.

You will also get a lot of tips on different things that will help you with your journey at WT. Along with that you will be academically advised for the first time by an advisor, and they will help you decide what classed you are required to take and what they recommend. THEN you will get to register for your first classes at WT! Current students will help you with the website and how to register. Peer leader, which direct NSO, are current students that really enjoy WT. They really have fun at NSO and want you to feel the love they have for this amazing campus. You really get to know them here. You may stay friends with them throughout the years.

You are also allowed to bring a guest. I brought my dad who is an alum of WT and he said it brought back lots of old memories! It was really cool to hear his stories while we walked around campus and to hear how much it has changed.

I had lots of fun when I went and I’m sure you will to! Don’t forget to register, the sooner you register the more you’re guaranteed classes that aren’t full! Don’t know where to sign up and want more information? Go to: http://wtamu.edu/admissions/new-student-orientation.aspx

Discover the Buff in you!

    Desi–I just checked and apparently the check-in and start times are being finalized (it wasn’t on the website)….but it’s probably going to be 8:00am-8:30am check in on the first day of orientation in the Alumni Banquet Hall. If you need testing done the day before, you would come in that day and testing begins in the afternoon. Michelle from Admissions is going to call you and help get you information specific to your needs. (Also keep in mind it’s about a 30 minute drive from the airport to campus, if that helps.) Thanks! Dan
