Web Chat for Incoming Families

Do you have last-minute questions before your student heads to UW–Madison? We want to help by inviting you to join the Parent and Family Program for a live, informational web chat for incoming students and their families.

Get all of your answers in this one-hour web chat on Thursday, August 16th, 2018 from 12-1 p.m. (CDT). Join the chat.

Our panel will include campus experts from the Office of Undergraduate Advising, Parent and Family Program, Center for the First Year Experience, University Housing, Campus Area Housing, Office of Student Financial Aid and the Center for Leadership and Involvement.

Panelists can field questions about important things to bring, Wisconsin Welcome, relationships with roommates and friends, healthy eating, homesickness, academics, advising, financial aid and anything else you may be wondering about.

Participants are encouraged to submit their own questions or simply sit back and observe the chat. For those who can’t participate in the live chat, a complete transcript will be available on this page immediately following the live portion of the chat.
