What is a Sprog? A Sprog is a new pirate, or one who is still getting his or her sea-legs, if you will. To help you prepare for a Pirate’s life (exclusively for deposited students), our Sprog Day events help train you for the Fall semester ahead.

We encourage students to try to attend one of the Sprog Day events below. Doing so will ensure the smoothest enrollment experience for you,especially in understanding how the Southwestern curriculum works, and how your first-semester schedule could look.

For Pirates only, these events are exclusively for students who have determined they will be attending Southwestern in the Fall. If you have not yet done so, please submit your enrollment deposit.  Then, review the dates below to find the option that best fits your schedule.
