Blugold Preview

Come see us in July and August!

Hey there, Blugolds! We are so excited that you will be joining us this fall! Until then, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect and get to know each other.

Blugold Preview Dates: July 9, 16, 23, 30 and August 6

Why wait until the fall to come to campus? By attending Blugold Preview, you won’t have to!  Although Orientation is virtual this year, we want you to have the opportunity to check-off some things that you typically would have the chance to do at an in-person Orientation. During Blugold Preview, you can check out the bookstore and pick up some of your textbooks, stop by Davies for lunch and even tour your Residence Hall!

The health and safety of our visitors and campus community is our top priority. Per the CDC's guidelines, our group sizes will be small and all visitors will be required to wear a mask.

While on campus, there are a number of things to do!

  • Tour your assigned residence hall
  • Get your official Blugold ID
  • Attend a meet and greet with faculty
  • Pick-up your textbooks and Blugold gear at the Bookstore
  • Join your future classmates for some outdoor activities with Sports + Recreation
  • Explore the beautiful city of Eau Claire
  • And so much more!

Stop by the Student Services Resource Fair

We know that you might have a lot of questions, so we have made sure that a number of resources will be available to you. While on campus, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Student Services Resource Fair and learn more about a variety of things. Some of the resources available to help include:

  • Housing
  • Dining
  • Advising, Retention, and Career Center (ARCC)
  • Study Abroad 

Interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine while you are on campus? The FEMA mass vaccination clinic located in Zorn Arena is accepting walk-in appointments, but the only way to guarantee you will be able to receive a vaccine while you are on campus is by registering online.

Virtual Option

If you’re not ready to join us on campus just yet, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Blugold Preview will also be available virtually throughout July and August so you can login for drop-in advising, live sessions and webinars, and other fun events!

I love UW-Eau Claire. The campus is beautiful and full of life — with not only students but wildlife, too! It is a campus that allows me to be entirely myself and feel comfortable doing so.
