The first four weeks of the semester is a key time for new students. Engaging with the campus community, getting to know other students, and developing a sense of belonging all help students start a new academic year strong.
That’s why UW created Wisconsin Welcome, a series of events that invite incoming freshmen and transfer students to engage, explore, and connect with campus and one another now through October 1, 2023.
The Wisconsin Welcome mobile app offers a comprehensive list of over 300 welcome events, inclusion education learning opportunities, a “make your own schedule” option, as well as resources available to new students. Encourage your student to download the app, browse events, and participate in new experiences this fall.
You can also learn more about WI Welcome, and follow along with what your students are up to by exploring #WIWelcome and following @uwnewstudent on Instagram.
