WSO Schedule

We are looking forward to seeing you at Winter Start Orientation (WSO) in January! 

WSO is a required program for all new students, including transfer students, enrolling in the Spring Semester, regardless of residency status or course format, and will help introduce you to campus, support resources, and the community. Winter Start Orientation 2022 will take place Jan 16 - 22, with move-in for domestic students on Jan 16; international students, or students arriving from international locations, will work with International Student Scholar Services for arrival dates and to confirm participation in International Student Orientation.

WSO will include time for (potential) COVID testing, move-in, required programming, and community building. WSO 20202 will take place on-campus and in accordance with CDC, federal, local, state, and campus COVID-19 guidelines/precautions. As COVID-19 may have unpredictable implications on this program and our campus status, we thank you for your patience as we continue to develop the schedule and are responsive to any changes in guidelines.

Should you have any questions in the meantime about WSO, please contact us via email Campus Activities or phone (719) 389-6800.
