Orientation | University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

You're a Blugold Now

Congratulations! We are so excited for you to join this big family. We hope you're looking forward to creating the perfect path for your UW-Eau Claire story. However, to follow your blue and gold brick road, you need to take the first step — orientation.

This year’s New Student Orientation will be a hybrid experience (with both in-person and virtual components) to acquaint you with campus and prepare you for your college life. You’ll learn the ropes of student life, engage with live events and webinars to hear about key policies & procedures, and be able to meet virtually 1-on-1 with your advisor to register for classes.

Whether you’re a first-time student, transferring from another university or flying overseas to be here, we can’t wait to connect with you in an experience you’ll never forget!

Which orientation process are you looking for?
