"I was pretty scared when I arrived for my freshman orientation experience since I didn't know what to expect. For the first part of orientation I was so overwhelmed. Once I was put into my small group I felt so much more comfortable. My orientation assistant was so welcoming and was able to answer all my questions. She was able to give us an insider’s perspective on UWEC. Being able to talk to a fellow student about everything from classes to the best food off campus was one of the highlights of my freshman orientation."
