O-town is a free annual event where local businesses and organizations introduce themselves to incoming freshmen and transfer students and their families. During O-town, businesses and organizations distribute informational fliers, hand out coupons, host activities, and sell college-appropriate merchandise. This year’s orientation theme is "There's No Place Like WC", therefore we encourage you to exercise your creativity and and utilize a Wizard of Oz theme. We are encouraging the class of 2017 to stop and see what our fantatic community offer. We also welcome all participants to decorate their tables, handout giveaways, and host games and activities at their tables.
O-town is the perfect opportunity to introduce your organization to incoming students.By participating in O-town yourorganization is automatically included in our College Town: Buy Local Guide for Students. This guide gives students details about your organization. In addition to O-town, each new student is given a welcome bag full of helpful items and information upon check-in at orientation. Your group can further connect with new students by donating promotional items such as, coupons, pencils, magnets, etc. to be placed in those bags. Welcome bag participation ensures knowledge about your organization is placed directly into the hands of each new student.
