Admitted Students Day is always an exciting time – it makes the returners excited for the coming year or nostalgic for the last four years and, personally, I don’t think you could have come on a better day. Our campus is beautiful all the time but there is something about a spring day that makes it so much better. Hopefully you’ll be able to experience that more fully next year!
So, are you still trying to make your decisions, newbies? I admit that our weather is… special… but WM is really awesome, especially our WM community. I’m sure you have heard about the community a lot already (if you haven’t I can guarantee you will) but it truly makes us unique. A big part of your early community here will be your freshman hall – really take advantage of these early friendships you make. They will stay with you. Also, just as importantly, take advantage of your RA. They are here to help you transition to college life – whether it is academic or social. If you have a question or there is an activity you want to do, ask your RA! We don’t want you to fumble – we want you to love it here as much as we do!
So, once again, welcome!
