New Student Resources

Welcome to Wentworth!

Over the next several years, Wentworth will be your home away from home as you engage in thoughtful classroom discussion, participate in campus activities and traditions, and develop new skills. Between now and the first day of class on September 6, there are number of ways that we will welcome you to the Wentworth family and prepare you for a successful college career. Programs for our new students include both in-person and virtual New Student Orientation (NSO) programs, Pre-WOW early arrival opportunities, Wentworth Opening Week (WOW), and Welcome Socials. Additional transition programs are provided for our transfer and international students. All students are required to attend NSO and WOW. 

Please review the list of dates and program overviews below to learn more information about all of our transition programs. 

If you have questions at any point during the summer, please reach out to us orientation@wit.edu or 617-989-4702.
