Badger Beginnings is a half day summer orientation program designed for recent high school graduates. Badger Beginnings includes fun activities, campus tour, faculty panel, and special sessions on student success and advising. Participants will receive their first college t-shirt and interact with other incoming students.


Parents/Guardians/Family Supporter of recent high school graduates are invited to attend a separate but specially designed orientation sessions, the same day as your high school graduate. You will have the opportunity to meet faculty members and college administrators who will guide you through programs covering topics from academics to student life.

General Sessions are sessions held prior to the start of each term. General Sessions include important information on key resources and strategies for success, plus a campus tour. New students are encouraged to attend an orientation that best matches the campus they will be attending their first year.
