Orientation is a great way to learn about campus life and the exciting opportunities that lie ahead. During Orientation, students and parents participate in activities that acquaint them with many aspects of the university: academics, services, recreation, residence life, faculty and staff, campus activities, important policies, and more.
New Student Programs: The mission of Orientation is to provide programming and resources that assist in the transition of our newest students as they learn to navigate the intellectual, cultural and social climate of William Paterson University. Students will be exposed to the key services and opportunities available to them, and we hope to enable students to make well-informed choices and decisions.
Parent and Family programs: In collaboration with members of the campus community, the parent and family orientation program aims to provide a structured and holistic introduction to the collegiate environment. Through programs offered, families will be informed about educational opportunities, responsibilities in and outside the classroom to support their students. To this end, families will also be reminded of their own student's role and responsibility in their academic success and personal development.
