FYI Summer Orientation 2015

Wofford College is excited to invite you to one of two Summer Orientation Events that is specifically planned for you and your parents. The dates for these events are June 26-27 and July 16-17. You will find the abbreviated schedule below. 

Summer Orientation is designed to further acquaint you with the academic and co-curricular programs of the college. During the day, you may choose between concurrent sessions which will discuss co-curricular programs as well as an advising session with an academic advisor who will review the forms and first year classes with you. When you come to orientation, please bring your copy of the FYI: Academics booklet that was mailed to your home.

If you need a hotel for the evening, using this link to make reservations will get you the Wofford rate at the Marriott a block away from campus. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide any on campus accommodations for summer orientation. 

We look forward to seeing you this summer.
