Welcome to Wheelock College! We are excited to have you join our friendly and dynamic community. We have developed a variety of programs and resources for first-year students, transfer students, commuter students, and multicultural students.

First Year Introduction

The first step to a successful college career is attendance and active participation in our First Year Introduction (FYI) events. This is a collaborative two-day program between the Offices of Student Success and Student Life that provides incoming first year students with a comprehensive academic and social experience that will help you prepare for your college career.

Learn more about First Year Introduction.

Fall New Student Orientation

The Office of Student Life looks forward each year to welcoming first-year students, transfer students, and their families to campus for our Fall New Student Orientation program.

Orientation begins each August with the check-in process. Activities, workshops, and programs then take place from throughout the weekend. All new students are required to attend all New Student Orientation & Transfer Orientation events.
