New Student Orientation 2022

Hello, Pirates!

We are eagerly awaiting your arrival here on campus. Preparing for New Student Orientation Week makes us all the more excited to see you! Speaking of New Student Orientation, we want to let you in on a few details that will be good to know. New Student Orientation Week starts with move-in day on Sept. 3. The week following will be filled with fun and exciting events that will start the process of getting to know Whitworth and each other. You will jump right into college life the moment you move in, and we are looking forward to sharing this journey with you! Keep an eye on your Whitworth email account – we will be sending more information your way in the months to come. 

Be sure to follow us on Instagram @whitworthorientation for giveaways, campus introductions and inside information about Whitworth life. Use the #NewPirates2023 to share your photos leading up to move-in day and during Orientation.

Get excited! We certainly are.
