Parents + Guests

The honorary Blugolds

Welcome to the Blugold family! We understand this day is really important for you. While your student is off scheduling classes and learning about student life, we have sessions for you as well. You'll get the opportunity to chat with university staff members, have all of your questions answered and mingle with other parents and guests. Don't worry, you'll be able to check in with your student throughout the day. You'll grab lunch with them and have the opportunity to attend different sessions about the university after they've scheduled their classes. By the end of the day you will wish you were coming to UW-Eau Claire in the fall.
