What is Pre-Orientation Weekend (POW)?

The next sneak peak is a special request from the Class of 2015 Facebook Page! Pre-Orientation Weekend! Here is the info straight from the New Student Manual that you will be receiving shortly. I'll post info on WOW and SOAR in a later post! :) Have questions, comments, concerns? Head here: Gabbi's Formspring!


PLENTY of friendly Saint Michael’s students, staff and faculty to meet!
OPPORTUNITIES to learn about college in general and Saint Michael’s specifically!
WOW...what a beautiful part of Vermont (your new home)!

POW is the oldest of our summer programs. It began in 1986 when a small group of students thought it would be nice to provide an opportunity for new students to come to Vermont during the summer to learn a little about Saint Michael’s and college life in general. In addition, they wanted to see a little of Vermont’s gorgeous outdoors. Though the program has grown in size, those three basic goals remain. We are now able to accommodate 90 students over the course of two weekends and one midweek experience.

What happens on POW?
Students participate in activities to get to know each other, learn what college is like, and talk to those who have been there. POW also includes a nature walk along the beautiful Stowe bike path.

Who goes on POW?
All new Saint Michael’s students are eligible for POW. There is space available for a total of 30 first-year and transfer students on each session. There will also be 18 current students, staff, and faculty who have volunteered their time to accompany the group.

What else do you need to know?

We stay in a ski lodge, and all meals and transportation are provided. POW is a popular program and fills quickly on a first-come first-served basis. You will receive more detailed information following the receipt of your application and fee.

What is the cost?
The POW fee is $215 per student. You must register by June 10, 2011.

More about POW and Summer Registration Day

Your POW experience begins with the Summer Registration Day program. The day starts with check-in from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. on the Saint Michael’s campus. At the end of your Summer Registration Day, we’ll all board a bus to Stowe.

If the POW you would like to attend is full when we receive your application, we will notify you immediately to discuss your options.

“POW was a great way to meet upper- level
students as well as first-year students!”

“POW helped me think about issues I may
face during my first year.”
