New Student?

Are you an Incoming Student (First Year or Transfer)? Please click on the picture to see a page with special information about housing for the fall.

Due to COVID 19 disruptions, the University has moved the due date for Housing (and Admissions) deposits until JUNE 1for incoming freshmen and transfers.

Due to complications in getting vaccines due to the Covid-19 quarantines, first year and transfer students will receive a housing assignment without providing evidence of an up-to-date meningitis vaccine first.  Any student who has not provided evidence prior to August 1, 2020 of having received a vaccine will be removed from their assignment and will not be permitted to move in.

Employment Opportunities

Beginning Monday, March 30, your Academic Resource Mentors will be available online to assist you in a number of ways.  If you’d like to contact them, their email addresses are listed on the Academic Success Spot/ARM website.

Some of the services you’ll have access to are:

  • Academic Coaching (individualized meetings) on subjects like evaluating your midterm grades, planning strategies to finish strong, Blackboard/WebEx/Zoom questions and concerns, transitioning to online classes, changing your study habits for home, connecting with faculty remotely, overcoming difficulties to working at home (working longer hours to help your family out, sharing computers, slow/weak wifi, helping out with younger siblings, etc.)
  • Online study sessions
  • Weekly video tips

We hope that you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to connect with help, or use one of the many other online resources now available through the TRC, Math Clinic, Writing Center, Pre-Collegiate Service, and Ancell Commons, for example!

There’s a  podcast for WCSU students, and it’s called Gab & GROW.

Each week, we’ll post short (about 20 minutes, mostly) podcasts about people, places and resources at WCSU that can help you be a successful student.  There are loads of things for new students, but there will also be information for upper level students as well.

All episodes are available online right now.  The QR code above will take you to SoundCloud® , but you may listen on any podcast platform, including iTunes, Stitcher, etc.
