Welcome to Washington University in St. Louis!

Bear Beginnings: New Student Fall Orientation is required for all fall incoming students, and will introduce you to Washington University and the St. Louis community.  Students, over the course of nine days, will move into their residential hall, interact with University staff, faculty, and upper-class students.  During Bear Beginnings, you will participate in three experiences: first with your residential college, second with your academic division, and third in an immersive experience with a group of your peers.
