MazalWake: The WFU Jewish Pre-Orientation

Photo of WFU Yamaka.MazalWake is a fun three-day Pre-Orientation to college and Jewish life at WFU, with an opportunity to explore Jewish identity and to develop friendships that will last a lifetime. MazalWake is designed and facilitated by Jewish/Hillel student leaders, faculty and staff as an interesting way to get to know your new Jewish community and its resources. Our schedule includes activities in secular and Jewish spaces on and off campus, from the WFU Hillel Lounge to local synagogues and eateries.

The MazalWake pre-orientation starts with your early move-in into your residence hall—the one you will inhabit for your first year of college—followed by a bagel brunch, of course, for you and your parents. Tuesday night ends with a debrief and reflections, although our journey together never really ends…
