New Student Orientation

First-year students

Tennessee Wesleyan University welcomes you to New Student Orientation. Orientation is a way for incoming students to meet each other and explore the University’s campus. During orientation, new students will meet many members of the university community, learn what it means to be a Bulldog, finalize your financial aid and meet with a faculty advisor to set up your semester schedule. Through our exciting overnight schedule, new students will get a taste of the activities offered through the semester, learn from current students and establish lasting bonds of friendship with other new students before the semester even begins. Meals and housing are provided. Thank you for choosing to join our family, and we look forward to seeing you!
