SIDEBAR: Freshmen Get Jump-Start on College Success

September 04, 2018

To get college life started off on the right foot, WWU freshmen have the opportunity to be a part of JumpStart the week of Sept. 16–22. JumpStart is a week full of events and programs designed to help students learn about how WWU works and where they can find the resources to help them be successful in college.

During the week students settle into their room before returning students arrive on campus, learn their way around campus, meet their academic advisor, choose a mentor, get help with registration, attend workshops to help them navigate and succeed in college, and meet new friends for life.
