The Center for the
First-Year Experience
(CFYE) helps incoming
students adjust to life
at UW-Madison, while
educating faculty and
staff on ways to connect
with first-year students.


We're glad you're here!




Ready. Set. SOAR.

Future Badgers: Congratulations and welcome to UW-Madison! You did it.

Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) is your first step in creating your own Wisconsin Experience. At SOAR, you'll learn about UW-Madison traditions, campus resources, and enroll in a class schedule that counts toward graduation. We'll see you there.
