The Department of New Student and Family Programs is committed to providing new students (domestic and international) and their families with the information, resources, and support that is needed during the transition to and through the college experience.
We will challenge and support new students as they engage in UWRF’s intellectual, cultural, and social climate. Our programs introduce new students to educational opportunities and the social responsibilities that are expected of campus community members.
We also believe that involved and informed parents and family members are an essential resource to new students during their transition to campus and consider them to be valuable partners in encouraging student success.
