Welcome Dinner

Welcome to West Chester University! We are very pleased that you will be joining us this fall semester. You are a member of a select group of transfer students who will become an integral part of the campus community. Congratulations on attaining your goal and being accepted!

As you prepare for the academic year, you may be feeling a range of emotions: excited, eager, energized, perhaps a bit stressed or anxious, too. Rest assured, all of us at WCU are ready to assist – from the bookstore staff who can decipher class and section numbers on your schedule so you buy the right books to the Student Orientation Leaders who will help you find your way on the first day of class.

One of the best ways to make a successful transition to college is to engage with other members of our campus community and make connections. I invite you to get off to the right start by joining my wife, Sue, and me, for a Fireside Chat on September 24 for new first-year and transfer students. Join us for conversation and marshmallow roasting in the backyard at Tanglewood, the presidential residence.

Whether you'll be commuting or living in the residence halls, this Fireside Chat provides the perfect opportunity to meet new people and perhaps even make a new friend. Student Government Association members will be there to help you learn about opportunities for engagement via WCU's student organizations, intramural sports, volunteer programs, and other co-curricular activities.

Finally, if you haven't discovered WCU on social media, now's the time to join the conversation. West Chester University's social media is about community and connection. Follow us on Twitter, follow us on Instagram and subscribe to us on YouTube.

Space is limited at the Fireside Chat. Sign up today by emailing me at: sign up

I look forward to meeting you on Monday, September 24!


Chris Fiorentino
President, West Chester University
