The Adventure Begins

Welcome Day:  Sunday 8 February 2015
First Year Orientation 2015:  Monday 9 February 2015 – Friday 13 February 2015

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 Welcome Day are geared to all family members.

The Orientation programme focuses on new students from Monday, 9 February 2015 through to Friday, 13 February 2015. The first day of classes starts on Monday, 16 February 2015. Click on the faculties in the left hand menu for more programme information
