Orientation

We know your first days at Northwestern set the tone for your entire four-year college experience, so we make sure your first NWC experiences are welcoming, fun and productive. During orientation, you’ll be guided through all the business of getting your college career started, like confirming your course selections and becoming acquainted with the people and resources that will support your learning both in and out of the classroom. You’ll meet professors, residence life staff and other new students—some of whom will become lifelong friends.
