Spring orientation is designed for both first-year and transfer students planning on starting classes in January 2023.

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 2023 orientation session will take place on Friday, January 6, 2023 and will be an in-person event held on campus. Check-in will begin at 9:30 a.m. The end time for orientation will vary based on which afternoon options you choose, however, all students should be done by 3 p.m.

Your in-person 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.
