Downtown Sugarhouse Website
New Student Orientation

We are so thrilled that you have made this decision to join the Griffin Community! To help you adjust to life here at Westminster College, we have provided this website as a starting point in preparation for New Student Orientation. FYSO is held in August and January for our incoming students. During orientation you will interact with fellow classmates, meet with faculty and staff, learn about campus resources, get all of your questions answered by GO Leaders (Griffin Orientation Leaders), and visit with a sampling of our student organizations, just to name a few.

Because we provide a great deal of information that is important to your successful transition to Westminster College, it is required that all first year students and transfer students participate in the New Student Orientation program. Westminster recognizes the importance of having a foundation of support to assist you in your acclimation to the College. We understand that your transition goes beyond orientation and as a result our staff works closely with all departments across campus to stay abreast of information that will aid in your transition. We wish you the best and do not hesitate to contact the Office of Student Involvement, Leadership, & Orientation at 801.832.2230 or for any assistance through out your transition.

Best Regards,
Karnell R. Black, M.Ed.
Director of Student Involvement, Leadership, & Orientation
