Welcome to WWU 101, our school's biggest admissions event of the year! If you are a high school or college transfer student planning on attending William Woods this August, this event is specifically for you. :)

WWU 101 is a great opportunity to meet several other incoming students, current students, as well as a bunch of faculty and staff. You will also have the chance to participate in several academic and social activities.

Academically, attending WWU 101 can give you a headstart in preparing for your upcoming semester. You will get to meet with your advisor, so you can talk about which classes you want to take in August. You can sit in on a current class if you would like. You can also learn about the honors program and Freshman Advantage! This is a great time to talk to a bunch of people and find answers to all your questions about your academic life here at The Woods.

I met Hannah Mansell when she came to visit campus for events like 101, and was super excited to welcome her as a new member of my sorority once August finally rolled around!

WWU 101 will also offer plenty of recreational activities, too! For example, in the afternoon we will have an ice cream social, a tie dye booth, and an opportunity to work with current fraternity and sorority members to make weekend food bags for kids in need. Representatives from WWU's many clubs and organizations will be around, too, so you'll be able to start thinking about how you might want to get involved. You will also have the opportunity to stay overnight on campus with a current student. I would absolutely encourage every single one of you to stay the night if you can! This is a wonderful way to get to know some of the current students a little bit better and get a feel for what it will be like to live here in the fall semester. There are also some great evening activities planned for students that are staying on campus: the show choir will perform their concert, "The Wonderful World of Disney," followed immediately by a hysterical performance from a professional improv team known as Mission IMPROVable!

Throughout the day, you will also be able to get your student ID, sign up for recruitment, and shop the WWU logo store. Be sure to bring your parents along; we are having a parent Q&A session and a parents' reception that evening!

WWU 101 is a wonderful opportunity for every incoming student. I'm so glad I was able to attend when I was still a senior in high school, and I have loved getting to help out with it as a current student every year since! If you are interested in attending, call the admissions office to RSVP at 1-800-995-3159. Let them know how many guests will be attending with you, and be sure to specify whether or not you want to stay the night!

I hope every single one of you can come! I look forward to meeting you there!
