Walton Orientation

Welcome to the Sam M. Walton College of Business! On behalf of our faculty, staff, and students, we extend a warm welcome to you, our newest students, and your families. You are now the Class of #Walton2027!

Welcome to Walton!

My name is Jeff Hood and I want to be the first to welcome you to the Sam M. Walton College of Business. We are excited that you will be joining the Walton family this fall and look forward to meeting you in person very soon.

To help you prepare for your academic advising appointment and your first semester as a business major, we have created an EPIC pre-advising experience and on-campus orientation designed to provide you with the tools you need to begin preparing for your first semester. In the following 4 sections, you will find information on the Walton curriculum, your fall schedule, important policies, resources and more.

You will also have the opportunity to complete the Walton Pre-Advising Form to help our advisors prepare for your one-on-one advising appointment.

To make sure your orientation runs as smoothly as possible, please be sure to complete all four online sections on this website prior to your on-campus orientation date. We also encourage you to make a list of questions that you have for your advisor so that we can be sure to answer them all.

We’ll see you in a few weeks!
