What are Preview Weekends?

Preview Weekends are early registration and orientation weekends, designed to give you the opportunity to meet 1-on-1 with an advisor, set up your fall class schedule, finish up necessary paperwork, and most of all meet and start building relationships with other new incoming OKWU students and members of OKWU’s faculty and staff.

Who needs to attend?

All incoming students need to attend one preview weekend to complete the registration process. We also want to encourage parents to attend with their students, as the weekend will help not only the students, but also the parents know what to expect come August and the beginning of the semester. We will cover details concerning New Student Orientation Weekend (Aug. 11-13), what new students should expect from the staff and faculty, and how to succeed as a student at Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

I already have a Class Schedule, do I need to attend a Preview Weekend?

Yes, we are excited that you have a schedule!  But there are other offices you might not have completed all the required information for.  Also, the seminar on Saturday covers information that students need, and the opportunity to meet other new students, as well as, our Student Development staff and your faculty advisor to help you connect to the OKWU community.

I am a local student and I plan to live at home during school year, do I stay on campus during Preview Weekend?

Yes, we want you to stay on campus during the preview weekend even though you will be staying at home during the school year.
