SWOSU New Student Orientation to Host On-Campus Events this Summer for Incoming Freshmen

While enrollment sessions continue in April for incoming freshmen to Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, SWOSU New Student Orientation (NSO) is planning to hold face-to-face events this summer for freshmen entering this Fall 2021.

Taler Alexander, coordinator of NSO, said students may choose to attend a NSO session on June 15, June 29, July 20 or August 11. Students can expect to hear from several departments, take a campus tour, get their student ID, and interact with current students and staff. The events will follow university COVID-19 protocols; students will be allowed two guests and all visitors must wear a mask while on campus.

Freshmen students wishing to enroll in classes for Fall 2021 can register for a virtual enrollment week. The NSO staff will help students connect with academic advisors in their area of interest. Then, during the student’s scheduled week, their advisor will set up either a phone or zoom appointment to complete enrollment.

“It is recommended that students complete enrollment prior to attending an information session,” Alexander said.

The next enrollment week will take place April 12-16 with more opportunities for enrollment coming up in June.

The NSO Office is also planning to hold Camp Duke on July 20-23 on the Weatherford campus. This event is a highlight of the freshman experience at SWOSU. At camp, students will meet new friends, get out of their comfort zone, and learn all about the history and traditions of SWOSU.

Alexander said many students report feeling more at ease with their transition to college because of their Camp Duke experience. The cost to attend Camp Duke is $200; the event will also follow university COVID-19 protocols.
