What to expect

Incoming freshmen are expected on campus on August 30th 2015 for the beginning of Orientation. Orientation activities will officially start with the Campus Welcome, held at 3:30pm in the Kress Event Center!

On-campus students may move into their rooms on the morning of August 30th, 2015 between 8:30am - 12:00pm (see your room assignment letter for your scheduled move-in time). There will be lots of help available during this time and you can meet members of the campus community and perhaps the Phoenix Mascot. Make sure to pick up your official Orientation name tag!

Orientation for first-year students officially runs from Sunday, August 30th through Tuesday, September 1st. During these three days, you will meet other students, faculty and staff. You will get the opportunity to learn about the University and the Green Bay Community. You will interact with faculty and learn about expectations inside and outside of the classroom. There are many events planned to help you get comfortable with campus and your peers.
