Listing of Pre-Orientation Programs (please note that the pages for each program may still have 2012 information available, this will help to give you an idea of what participants may expect in 2013):

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation occurs at the start of the fall semester and is intended for new first-year, new transfer 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.

UW-L currently offers three First-Year Experience residence halls: Coate, Laux, and White Halls.
