Orientation Workshops - Handouts and Links
If you attended one or more of the various workshops during orientation, you have been told about the handouts available on our website. This is the place to be. If you just want to read over the information one more time or print a copy for you to peruse at leisure, you will find these handouts useful. And if you find that you still have a question, please feel free to call the individual offices or contact Ginny Diaz at 203-837-9700.

Western is a member institution of ISEP which means our students can study abroad at other ISEP member universities almost anywhere in the world, paying only Western's tuition, room & board plus travel expenses, international insurance, and the ISEP Fee. Students can go for one semester or an entire year, but need to remember to apply about 6 months in advance of their travel to be considered within the priority pool of applicants. Credits transfer as free elective credits only, unless otherwise arranged with department chairs.
The Midtown Coffeehouse was established in the fall of 2005 and has run continuously throughout the fall and spring semesters ever since. Thus, it has become an event students can count on for their Thursday night entertainment - an hour of open mic followed by a featured performer or a themed evening of entertainment. Lately a number of table games have been added to the line-up of free food, sodas, and coffee so that students have a chance to socialize while listening to the performances.

Parents expectations can influence a students’ behavior at school.
