Academic Day branding image

Academic Day marks the beginning of the academic year and welcomes new students to our community of scholars.  Students will begin to network and form relationships with faculty and classmates in their area of study, gain a better understanding of academic expectations, and explore resources that are available to support student success. 

During Academic Day you will: 

1) Meet your academic advisor and learn how to best contact him or her  

2) Learn more about UWRF and the resources available to you 

3) Develop an understanding of your academic program and the expectations of your program
