Orientation students

Week of Welcome (WOW!)

Week of Welcome is separate from the summer sessions that you have attended during the summer. This is a required engaging program for all new freshmen to assist you in your transition into NDNU. During your advising session, you will be registered for ID 1000: Week of Welcome.

You will be:

  • oriented to additional departments and services at NDNU,
  • attending sessions to assist you to be a successful NDNU student,
  • participating in a community-based learning experience with faculty and your RA,
  • participating in many social events to introduce you to your fellow classmates, and
  • having fun!!

Additionally, you will receive resource materials and your Student Handbook. WOW! sessions begin Friday, August 22 and end September 1. All freshmen (commuters and residents) are required to attend all sessions and events (attendance will affect your grade for Week of Welcome if you do not attend sessions). Students will receive their WOW! schedule booklet at the Family Dinner on Thursday, August 21. This booklet must be turned in promptly after WOW! ends.
