Throughout the summer, you will select and register for your College Colloquium, register for your first semester of college courses, and indicate your housing preferences for your first year. It's an incredibly exciting time in your life, and that excitement will continue with Opening Days, our new student orientation, in August.
During Opening Days, commonly called "OD", you will move into your new community, meet your fellow classmates, and begin your College Colloquium course. OD is an entirely student-run program, meaning that I, as OD Coordinator, along with a skilled Leadership Team, have designed the program to introduce and welcome you to our community in the most enjoyable, informative way possible. Your dedicated and enthusiastic OD Leaders will contact you before OD even begins to introduce themselves and answer any questions you may have. During and after OD, your OD Leaders will be there as a resource and a friend for you and will help you transition to your new community here at Willamette. We are all here to support you, and I would love to hear from any of you this summer if you have questions or concerns.
Before OD begins, relax and enjoy your summer - curl up with some Netflix, go adventuring, and enjoy the last summer before you are a college student! Your OD Leaders, myself, and the Willamette community cannot wait to welcome you home on August 25th, as you begin your collegiate journey with boundless opportunity and possibility.
