What are they generally like?  It's going to be a 3 day deal at WCL.  Just curious as to what they typically cover!  tyia

It varies dramatically by school. Mine was pretty minimal. The first day was pretty much a tour of the school, getting stuff to sign up for Westlaw/Lexis, buying books, and doing a service project. The second day was only 4 hours and was a 2-hour welcome ceremony of sorts followed by a reception. Then we had 1-2 hour Wednesday evening meetings 3 or 4 times for other topics like financial aid and diversity (such a joke). Other schools actually have classes during this period.

You go out and serve the community. Basically I just organized but people paint or do heavier labor or tutor. It's voluntary at my school though so not everyone goes.
