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. Orientation is a day to meet friends, sign up for classes and immerse yourself into the campus you will call home. You’ll learn university policies and procedures, as well as meet your advisor. Whether you’re coming to college for the first time, transferring from another university or flying overseas to be here, we can’t wait to meet you.

Which orientation are you supposed to attend?
