Biographical Note/Historical Note +/-
From 1970-1982, the Student Affairs Office at Westminster College was responsible for student orientation and worked with student government to prepare student handbooks each year. Beginning in 1983, the name of the office changed to the Student Services Office. The name has changed once again, now to Student Service Administraton.
Currently, orientation information for students and their parents is made available electronically on the Westminster College webpage entitled First Year Student Orientation. This site has additional links for freshmen students, transfer students, international students, and parents and families.
