MAZALWAKE.  MazalWake is our WFU Jewish Pre-Orientation Program (schedule for 2017 here) which takes place from Sunday, Aug 20 through Tuesday, August 22.  Register HERE.

  • 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.
  • Our schedule includes activities in secular and Jewish spaces on and off-campus, from the WFU Hillel Lounge to local synagogues and eateries.
  • MazalWake is designed and facilitated by Jewish / Hillel student leaders and staff as an interesting way to get to know your new Jewish community and its resources, as we get to know each other.
  • The pre-orientation begins with your early move-in into your dorm room – 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….
