Nesting begins a few days before classes start and provides students with the opportunity to:
- Meet classmates
- Explore campus resources
- Connect with a current UWRF student leader (OTL)
- Learn about life as a Falcon
- Attend tons of FUN events
We are committed to providing you with the resources to make your college experience both rewarding and enriching. However, your experience and success will ultimately depend on you, and the extent to which you actively engage in the UWRF community and all of the opportunities it offers.
