New Student Orientation

Welcome to Western New Mexico University!

The purpose of the new student orientation at Western New Mexico University is to ensure that new students have a successful transition and integration into college life. In addition to serving as an introduction to many of the opportunities and resources available at our campus, orientation is an introduction to the requirements you'll need to fully enroll and become a successful member of the Mustang community.

By attending orientation students will:

  • Complete a class schedule in his/her chosen major
  • Have a comprehensive academic advising session
  • Gain more knowledge of student support services, the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, and the Western academic experience.
  • Gain a better understanding of the personal and financial responsibilities of attending college
  • Reduce anxiety about the transition to collegiate life
  • Understand the necessity of students taking ownership and academic responsibility in their educational process
  • Begin to embrace “the Western Way”

We are currently working to prepare for your arrival this coming fall. Starting in the spring of 2014, you will begin to hear from us about how you can prepare for your college career. Whether it is information on computing, eating in the dining halls, or housing, this communication will begin to shape your understanding of Western New Mexico University.
