The Adventure Begins

Get Ready... for First Year Orientation 2015!

8 February 2015 (Sunday) – 13 February 2015 (Friday)

Going away to University is a big transition, and the Orientation program at Wits is designed to make that transition easier. Orientation is a weeklong program organized to introduce incoming students to each other, the campus and local community. Current students will welcome new students to campus and will work hard throughout Orientation to make sure it is a memorable week and a great introduction to life at Wits.

The orientation week starts off with our Welcome Day (Sunday, 8 February 2015 at 11:00).  The programs and events on the Welcome Day will be geared to all family members.

Orientation programming will then be exclusively focused on the new students from Monday, 9 February 2015 through to Friday, 13 February 2015. The first day of classes will be on Monday, 16 February 2015.
