Laker Welcome is a very special time at Southwestern because it is a chance for us to welcome you to our beautiful campus and to our community. It is also a chance for us to assist you in making the transition as smooth as possible. Through an exciting, fun, and informative program of activities and events, Orientation will help you get to know the campus, and build relationships with fellow students and faculty.
