Spring orientation is designed for both first-year and transfer students planning on starting classes in January 2021.

Orientation is an important first step in your BW experience! It offers helpful information about college life, as well as the opportunity to meet other students, faculty and staff. Whether you are a recent high school graduate or transferring to Baldwin Wallace, orientation is designed to welcome you to the BW Community.

The Spring 2021 Orientation Session will take place on Thursday, January 14, 2021 and will be a virtual experience due to the restriction on large group gatherings during the pandemic. The virtual session will begin at 10 a.m. ET and will conclude by 1:30 p.m.

Your virtual orientation experience will be supplemented by Stinger’s Playbook. The playbook consists of online modules that will provide additional information to assist you in being a successful student at BW. Stinger’s Playbook is self-paced and can be completed anywhere, at any time, and the detailed information can be referred to throughout the year. Details on how to access Stinger’s Playbook can be found below.

Please note, there is a $200 orientation charge that will appear on your BW billing statement.
