Welcome New Students!



New Student Orientation occurs at the start of the fall semester and is intended for all new students.  and returning students. It is our way to welcome students both back, and to, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus.

New Student Orientation offers a variety of programs, services, activities, and fun events designed to welcome and introduce students to all of the engagement opportunities at UW-L . There are plenty of opportunities to meet other new and returning students, find out ways to get involved, and prepare for the academic year.

We have a number of staff and student volunteers who are here to help with your transition to the College. Whether it is moving in or learning all you need to know about UW-L, our volunteers are here for you.


Even the most enthusiastic student may not be able to attend all the events, but we hope that you will review the Schedule of Events and browse the activities available to new and returning students.

Welcome Week is an exciting opportunity for you to learn about and celebrate the College community, meet other new and returning students, and prepare for the year. For new students, it is the final step in the orientation process.

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse!
