How to Make Your Nest on Campus: New Commuter Students

6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. | Richardson Ballroom, DIGS

Commuting and finding your place on campus can be a challenge. You’re still living at home (or just not on campus), and it can be hard to find your fit. Our panel of upperclassmen commuter students will share their experiences and provide insight into what it’s like as a commuter, as well as tips and tricks to succeed in and out of class.

All first-year commuter students should plan to attend this session before First Night Winthrop. Freshmen will be on time to First Night Winthrop, so just let your Peer Mentor know that you plan to attend. Students will review the Welcome Week schedule, as well as learn tips and tricks to getting the most out of the commuter experience at Winthrop.

Mandatory Event for Freshmen

Welcome home! Tonight you begin your 261 day journey to make each day count.

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.  #261FYE 

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.
