Orientation helps get new students connected to Wells and to our welcoming community, right off the bat!
New first-year students arrive on campus Thursday, Aug. 22, and spend several days settling into their residence hall, meeting fellow students, and attending special sessions introducing them to student life and the academic environment at Wells. Events will be coordinated and run by members of the Student Life office and student peer leaders.
Aug. 22: Check-in for New Students
When new students arrive on Thursday, Aug. 22, they are asked to check-in at the Art Exhibit Room, 3rd floor of Macmillan Hall, at the following times based on their residence hall assignment:
- 8:30–10:00 a.m. ~ Dodge Hall residents
- 10:30–Noon ~ Leach Hall residents
- 12:30–2:00 p.m. ~ All remaining residence halls
Reminder: please note that check-in is in the Art Exhibit Room — NOT at your residence hall!
After Orientation Ends
Classes begin on Monday, Aug. 26. That afternoon there will also be a "Welcome Back BBQ" at 5 p.m., followed by the annual Opening Convocation ceremony at 7:30 p.m.
