Your First Year

January Orientation

Before you step foot in your first class, it helps to know the basics. 

During orientation we’ll cover everything you need to know about being a student here so that when classes start, you and your classmates will be ready to hit the ground running. 

Inside the Classroom

You wouldn’t have been accepted to Washington College if we didn’t think you could handle the academics. But during orientation, we’ll help you better understand the expectations that faculty have for you and acquaint you with all of the academic support services like the Writing Center, the Office of Academic Skills, and the Quantitative Skills Center.

Outside the Classroom

Orientation is your first real glimpse of what your life is like when you’re not in classes. Getting involved in clubs and organizations is easy at Washington College, you’ll find out how!

And Everything in Between

Making connections and friends in your Peer Mentor group and on your hall is the first step to creating your new network.  Orientation allows you to get to know your fellow students, your academic advisor, and a host of others who are here to help you make the transition.


We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, January 15, 2015 for the start of Orientation! 
Check-in is from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. in the Underwood Lobby, Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts.
