Spring Orientation

We are so excited for your arrival! 

To better prepare you for life at Widener, the Student Affairs division is pleased to welcome your participation in the 2016 Spring New Student Orientation program.

The spring orientation program is designed to help bond you to the university and to encourage you to feel part of the community. It's a tightly condensed version of our Fall Orientation schedule, so you can expect an afternoon full of information about what being at Widener is like.

You'll connect with other students and learn about the numerous opportunities Widener offers, both in and outside the classroom.

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