Start Strong
Kick-off the fall semester the right way.

At WT, we are intentional.

Start Strong is about being intentional and offering programs that focus on assisting students with their social adjustment at WT. 

The first few weeks of college are critical to the long-term success and retention of our students. Our hopes are that students will have an abundance of opportunities to engage with others and meet peers through a variety of different programming. 

Every student belongs at WT. 

Start Strong serves as a reminder that students can succeed in college and build strong connections with others. It will allow students to make a friend and feel a sense of belonging in their first few weeks on campus.
