The Purpose of On-Campus Orientation


Our on-campus Orientation is designed to provide you with the most important information you will need to be successful in your studies at Western. During orientation, you will have an opportunity to meet President Randy Roberts and hear firsthand his vision for the seminary and heart for you as a student. You will meet other students in your degree program, learn how your program has been designed to equip you for ministry, get your questions answered, and receive tools to equip you in your first year and beyond.
