New Student Orientation

Get ready!

New Student Orientation (NSO) takes place just before your A-Term classes begin at WPI. It’s your chance to move in, get acquainted with the campus, meet your classmates, and settle in. During these fun, informative, and productive days, you’ll acclimate to campus and ease into college life, with the guidance of your Insight team.

The Student Activities Office, along with current WPI students, is already planning for your arrival as a member of the Class of 2020. The orientation program brings together all first year students with upperclassmen, faculty, staff, and alumni. You will attend a variety of sessions to learn more about our unique academic program, rich history and traditions, and the broad spectrum of campus activities.

You will receive more information and schedules for your arrival at WPI and New Student Orientation in the coming months.
