Summerstart Reservations


Summerstart reservations are now CLOSED. New freshmen who do not attend Summerstart must make a reservation to attend Fall Advising & Orientation on Monday, September 19. You can learn more about Fall Advising & Orientation and keep updated with all our Western Welcome Week activities on the New Student Services/Family Outreach website. Reservations for Fall Advising & Orientation will open midday, July 22nd.

Family members who did not pre-register for Family Orientation are welcome to join the program at check-in. On-campus guest housing is currently full through Session #6, but we always have space for you to participate in the day program! The cost remains $65 per adult and can be paid at check-in. Family members do not accompany students for most of their student schedule, regardless of participation in the family orientation, but there will be opportunities to overlap. For a schedule overview, visit the Summerstart Schedule section of our website.
