The Virginia Wesleyan University journey began for the Class of 2023 on June 21 and 24 during Marlin Nation Orientation. Students and their families participated in sessions that helped to prepare them for life on campus this fall.

From learning more about housing and residential life and how to navigate the financial aid process to exploring Coastal Virginia and campus safety, each orientation topic was designed to successfully acclimate VWU's incoming students to college life.

Students also met with their advisors to build class schedules, learned more about University administrators through "Coffee Talk: Marlin Edition," and explored the VWU campus by earning “passport” stamps that were counted toward a raffle drawing at the end of the eventful day.

The next wave of orientation for first-year students begins on August 25. Transfer Student Orientation will take place August 27.
