Admitted Students

It’s summertime and you may be wondering what's next with respect to becoming a Prairie Wolf. Here's what you have to look forward to.

Housing Packets are coming in July.

Look forward to these traditions.

  • Hypnotist – For over 35 years, NWU students have kicked off the academic year at this event the night before classes sponsored by Wesleyan Entertainment Board
  • First Walk – at Matriculation Convocation you will start your first journey through campus as an official student. Your Final Walk will take place at graduation.
  • Lend-A-Hand to Lincoln – after you move in, you will spend a day helping local non-profits.

Look forward to your Archway Seminar.

Your Archway Seminar (AWS) prepares you for a more vigorous academic experience. The small class size—under 20 students—encourages engagment while expandng your skills in research, writing, critical thinking, project management and communication.

Your AWS professor wil be your acdemic advisor until you declare a major. And student instructors will be great peer resources.

The AWS prepares you for the Archway Curriculum that will shape your learning throughout your academic career at Nebraska Wesleyan. Learn more about the Archway Curriculum and how it will help you become a stand-out candidate after you graduate.

Show and tell.

Between now and Friday, July 12, show us one thing that truly says something about you. It might be the glove you wore to your first tee-ball game that set you on the course to become an NCAA student-athlete. Or maybe it’s the guitar you take to open mic night.

Post a selfie with that special thing to the Class of 2023 NWU Facebook group and you could win a $50 gift card for munch money at the student center.

We’ll draw winners at random and post their names to that group on July 15.
