We hope you are excited as we are that you are joining the Wingate family. Orientation is an extensive program that was created to best assist students and families in the transition to college life at Wingate University. It has two portions, one during the summer, called Summer Orientation, and another during the fall, called Welcome Week. Summer Orientation will assist you with meeting other students and faculty as well as fall registration by taking placement tests. You will also have the opportunity to get your Wingate Student ID, select your meal plan and learn important information about the University and services to help you understand what it means to be a Wingate bulldog and to guide you through Orientation so you can begin to Major in a Great Life! We are looking forward to seeing you this summer!
