Westminster Scholars 2014 Orientation information
Westminster Scholars Orientation 2014
Since many incoming freshmen participate in the outdoor recreation orientation trips this year we have planned the Westminster Scholars orientation events so that there will be no scheduling conflicts with any of those trips.
For all students who participate in the outdoor recreation trips, your Westminster Scholars orientation will begin Saturday, August 16 at 10:00 a.m.
For the rest of you, there is an early dorm check-in on Thursday, August 14, from 5-7 p.m. (regular dorm check-in is Friday, August 15) followed by an ice cream social.
On Friday, August 15 we will be doing an optional short hike in the foothills near Salt Lake City from 8:45-noon, followed by a climbing wall activity. These are just opportunities to meet and interact with your peers, they are not mandatory. Most Westminster Scholars enjoy and appreciate the early dorm check in, since the regular check in times can be a bit hectic.
On Saturday, August 16 we will meet at 10:00-11:00 (room TBD) for introductions and an overview of the Scholars program. This will be followed by the Westminster orientation activities, which run from Saturday through Monday. A full description of those events can be found at http://issuu.com/fyso/docs/2014_freshmen_student_schedule_of_e
On Tuesday, August 19 we will meet in the Bassis Center at 9:00 a.m. and travel to an off campus site to participate in a volunteer service project. We will return by noon when you’ll meet the Westminster Scholars Council. This will be followed by a job fair.
