Orientation at Wartburg introduces our incoming class to their new community while preparing new students for success beyond the first year. Students are expected to attend all activities and programming, where important information will be shared. During orientation, first-year students get a head start on their academics by starting their IS 101 course early. This course serves as a home-base for first-year students and aims to assist students in their transition into college life by encouraging their involvement, both curricular and co-curricular, in activities and experiences that will enrich personal growth and development and be sustained throughout a student’s academic career. Orientation groups will consist of the same students enrolled in each IS 101 section. We can’t wait to get to know you at New Student Orientation!
