Yellowjackets Are Buzzing About the New School Year

Classes begin on Tuesday, September 6

The University of Wisconsin will begin its 121st school year with a variety of activities to welcome students and faculty back to campus.

“It’s such an exciting time to be a Yellowjacket,” UW-Superior Chancellor Renee Wachter said. “For the second year in a row, we’re seeing an impressive increase in freshman enrollment and transfer students. We’ll also have the largest and most diverse population of international students our university has ever hosted, with students from more than 45 countries.

The All Campus Opening for faculty and staff will happen on Tuesday, August 30 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Yellowjacket Union Great Room with a discussion about improving campus climate and retention.

Move In Day for new and returning students in the residence hall will be on Thursday, September 1. The day is also the beginning of Weekend of Welcome, a three-day orientation program for new freshmen. It’s a weekend jam packed with events and activities to welcome and assist students with the transition into college life.

The New Student Celebration will take place at 3 p.m. in the Great Room of the Yellowjacket Union, which will mark the students’ formal entrance into the college world, as students will learn about UWS’ history and the importance of the liberal arts.

Classes begin at UWS on Tuesday September 6.
