Northwood University Hosts Knights’ SWORD

Filed under: Schools |

It is not too late to register for Northwood University’s Knights’ SWORD (Student Welcome, Orientation and Registration Day).  SWORD is designed to make a student’s transition to Northwood University as smooth as possible.  At SWORD, young Knights learn about their new campus home, meet professors and register for classes. The mission of orientation is to provide new students with the foundation for academic and extracurricular success at Northwood University.  More importantly, students have the opportunity to meet fellow classmates, make new friends and be prepared to call Northwood home when they arrive in August.

The next two SWORD dates are Friday, July 27, 2012 and Friday, August 17, 2012.  Orientation dates will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is important to choose your date as soon as possible to ensure you receive the date of your choice.

Abby Babbitt, director of leadership and character development and SWORD coordinator, said, “I am so excited to meet and greet the new Knights.  I have several fun and exciting events planned for the students during the course of the school year and am looking forward to it.”
