Connecting you to the wolfpack!

The department of New Student and Family Programs aims to provide new students and their families with the information and resources they need to succeed as they begin a new chapter of their lives. We strive to create a welcoming and accessible environment for all students to feel at home in the Western Oregon University community. We invite you to join us for our upcoming orientation activities!
