Congratulations and Welcome to Roger Williams University!

As you begin the next chapter in your life, we are excited to have you join the Roger Williams University Community! New Student and Family Orientation is an amazing two-day program that provides an educational experience while building a strong bond with the Roger Williams University community. While Orientation is a required part of every new student’s transition (optional for family members, but highly encouraged), many years of experience have shown us that Orientation is an essential piece of every student and families experience becoming a part of the RWU community. 

As part of the Orientation program, students will meet with faculty members, learn about academic placement, and register for Fall semester courses. In addition, it is our goal for you to get acquainted with campus: learning traditions, policies, and academic requirements as well as being introduced to campus life and all of the resources available at Roger Williams University.
