Spring Orientation

We are so excited for your arrival! On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, we are pleased to welcome your participation in the 2017 New Student Orientation Program for incoming new and transfer students.

The Spring Orientation Program is designed to help prepare you for success at Widener University, and connect you with important resources and professional staff that will aid in your transition to University life. You will also have the opportunity to connect with other students going through the same experiences as you. Together, you will further learn about a variety of opportunities that Widener offers inside and outside of the classroom. Many new adventures await you!

Spring Orientation is recommended for both new resident and commuter students.
