What is WOW?

Week of Welcome (WOW) provides new students with the opportunity to meet classmates, explore campus resources, and learn about life as a Falcon, all while having tons of fun!  

Participation in WOW is expected of all new students - whether you're living on campus or commuting from home. We want everyone to have the information they need to make the most of their UWRF experience!
