This independent orientation experience is an alternative to a small group guided WOW experience. Independent WOW Experience (IWE) is available for the transfer student that requires the fundamental programming but needs flexibility in their schedule free of small group format. Transfer students who participate in this experience will attend various presentations and activities. Orientation staff will be on hand to assist with questions during the presentation and activities.
More information about the Transfer Independent WOW Experience will come closer to WOW. In the meantime, check below for some general information.
