Wingate Orientation

Hello, Wingate University Class of 2024!

We realize that your senior year hasn’t ended the way you’d planned. Know that Wingate’s Office of New Student Orientation is determined to make the next step on your academic journey, the transition to university life, as smooth as possible.

Initially, we’ll have to do that from afar. Meeting new students and their families on campus each summer is our favorite part of the year, but with the University’s decision to move all summer classes online, we felt we needed to make a call on our summer transition programs sooner rather than later. With that in mind, Camp Bulldog has been canceled, and new-student orientation will now take place only online.

In the coming weeks, our office will reveal the new plans for Orientation via email. Be sure to check your Wingate email account often and interact with our office through the New Student Orientation online course. Also, please keep up to date on your new student portal, which contains all of the checklist items you need to complete before your arrival in August. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to us at

We’re in uncharted territory, and the “new normal” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But we’re still going to make sure you are as prepared as possible for the new school year this August.

Go Bulldogs!
