WISE Orientation Schedule (past year)
The first few days we have a number of special activities planned for all of the new WISE students and the peer mentors. Please look over the schedule below so that you keep these events in mind after you move-in to the living center.
We’ll have faculty, staff, peer mentors and your Resident Assistant all involved in all of these program, that we know will benefit you as you get to know your house-mates, the WISE community and the GVSU campus. We’ll be there to help you and get to know you as you move-in, take a cruise on one of the GVSU research vessels (the Jackson out of Muskegon, MI), tour the GVSU Water Research Institute and meet environmental scientists there, and get to know your campus resources- all before classes begin.
The following lists the activities that all WISE students will be involved with during the first week on campus. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments- we look forward to meeting you in a few weeks!
