Welcome new WC students!

You are each about to embark upon an exciting and life changing experience. I remember entering WC as a first-year student, full of excitement, yet fearful about the unknown. Who would my new friends be? What would the professors be like? Would I pass my classes? Who will I eat with in the TOP? What will my roommate be like? How will I ever survive on my own? These questions faded quickly as I dove into my freshmen orientation program. I was assigned to a group full of other students who were asking the same questions. Little did I know, but others felt the same anticipation, yet anxiety I was feeling. Orientation proved to be just what the doctor ordered. I quickly began meeting people who would become my friends for life. I had a better understanding of what to expect in the classroom and actually began to feel like a REAL WC student.
