NSP MISSION

The Office of New Student Programs' mission is to welcome, support, and assist new students and members of the Ram Fam by providing programs and resources aimed at student success. We achieve this mission by offering virtual and in-person orientation and welcome week programs designed to help students with the transition to college academic rigor, facilitate social connections, and explore opportunities for co-curricular involvement. Understanding the importance of family support, our office partners directly with the Office of Parent & Family Relations to equip members of the Ram Fam with resources to help their students in their academic pursuits and involvement efforts during their time at West Chester University.
