Welcome New Blugolds! 

It's all about the First Year.

UW-Eau Claire places special emphasis on success in your first year on campus. The First Year Experience program is designed to help you get comfortable on campus, connect with resources in and outside of the classroom and start to think of UWEC as your home.

Start by participating in the BLUPRINT FOR A BLUGOLD program. Attend in person events or complete our online modules

Instructors who want access to the Bluprint for a Blugold module, please contact either Julia Diggins  or Louisa Rice.

Help us improve "Your First Year Experience" by taking our quick and easy  FYE Survey....
