New Student Orientation

Ready. Set. Wesleyan.

Tennessee Wesleyan University welcomes you to New Student Orientation. 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. Lunch will be provided.

Families are encouraged to attend with their student. For first-time freshmen, orientation is an overnight experience so families should plan to be here both days.
