Connections Pre-orientation is a residential bridging program at WPI held in August prior to New Student Orientation (NSO) to help entering eligible first year students make a smooth transition from high school to college. Connections students participate in academics, social activities, workshops on team building and leadership, networking socials, field trips, and more.
The week-long program is designed to help acclimate students to college life prior to NSO. They learn skills and tools to help them succeed during their WPI career and beyond.
Connections Program activities include everything from learning how to use WPI’s specific technology to college success skills training to training on written, electronic, and oral communication.
The Connections Pre-orientation Program is offered at no cost to pre-registered, eligible first-year WPI students.
