Mandatory Event for Freshmen

Welcome home!

We know there are so many questions about the transition to college and tonight will help answer those questions and ease the transition!  You will create new bonds with your FYE Peer Mentor, ACAD 101 faculty, and classmates. ACAD 101 sections will meet in classrooms across campus.  

Locations are listed below.  Students should attend based on your ACAD 101 section number (far left column).  To find your ACAD 101 section number, look at your course schedule in Wingspan.  Your section number is the last 3-4 digits of your class (ex. ACAD 101-XXX).  If you're not sure of your section number or where to go, ask your Peer Mentor or OL.  On the website is the list of ACAD classes and instructors with Peer Mentors.

First Night Winthrop

It's your first night at Winthrop and your first chance to get to know your Peer Mentor, ACAD peers and fellow members of the incoming class.  You will enjoy a night of laughter and fun as you begin forming the first of many lifelong friendships.  This event will be carnival style with food, music, and games for all! Note: Please be sure to know your ACAD section number (found on your Wingspan class schedule) so you can quickly identify your Peer Mentor upon arrival.
