Adult Learner Orientation
Date: Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Place: Alumni Hall
Welcome to WestConn!
Whether this is the first time you will set foot on a college campus, or whether you are returning to college after taking a few years off (okay, maybe several years off), as an adult learner, you may have some questions and concerns that differ from traditional students.
So, we invite you to join us for a brief, but informative evening, geared toward the adult student. You will have a chance to connect with other adult learners who are “in the trenches,” and who are enthusiastic about offering encouragement and support, in addition to hearing from professionals at the university, who can answer some of your academic questions (some of whom were adult learners, too!). Relax and get to know a bit about your university over light refreshments.

How to get connected at WestConn
In beginning your education at WestConn, it is important to get connected with both your faculty and your peers. To that end there are a number of activities that we suggest you consider attending. For example, every Thursday you could attend the Midtown Coffeehouse at 8pm in Alumni Hall. The evening usually starts with an hour of open mic, followed by a featured performer. The Coffeehouse is always free and sandwiches, soda and of course coffee are always on the house.
On some Fridays you could attend the PAC movie night usually scheduled for 8pm in the Student Center Theater. This event is also free to all students and a fun way to see a movie a second time or even the first if you’ve missed it in the theatres.
Perhaps the best way to connect with WestConn is at Clubs Carnival. Virtually every student organization will have a table to present their program to new students. In addition there will be music and amusements. Please keep checking back to find out where and at what time Clubs Carnival will be scheduled.
And at the end of the day, you can relax and unwind and have a cup of Seattle’s Best coffee at the Westside Campus Club which is open most afternoons and nights.
