Why Choose WDW One Order & Disorder?: The transition from high school to University can be tough. It’s a new academic environment, you don’t know many people and the academic expectations are a lot higher. By integrating University level course content into a smaller class size where students can get to know their classmates and their instructor, similar to the environment in high school, the Woodsworth One Program provides a good stepping stone to help students get acclimated to University life. Also, the CCRs give students an opportunity to sharpen key skills such as essay writing and time management, and to learn more about opportunities at the University.
Tip for Current WDW One Students: Get Involved! Whether it’s playing a new intramural sport, writing for The Varsity, or running for student government – getting involved is a great way to make new friends, develop your skills, and develop valuable experience to put on a resume.
