GB Welcome

Welcome to the Phoenix Fam!

We're so happy you're here.

These next few days leading up to your first day of classes will be some of the most memorable during your time as a student. Student Ambassadors will guide you through your experience as you learn more about the university, meet new friends, and prepare to start your fall semester. Oh, and did we mention there's a party at Lambeau Field?
A large crowd of students gather at Lambeau Field for their civic engagement celebration in September 2021. Many students have their hands up and are dancing to music.
